About us

Nurse & Midwife Support (NM Support) is the first national telephone and online service to offer health support to nurses and midwives in Australia. It is free, confidential and available 24/7.

We strive to contribute to better health and wellbeing for nurses and midwives, and safer care for the public.

Phone support

Nurses and midwives who call the telephone service will have 24/7 access to an experienced team who can assist with a wide range of health and wellbeing related issues that may be affecting their practice. The service also provides support to nursing and midwifery students, educators, employers and concerned family members.

Online support

This website has been designed for nurses and midwives so that they can find health services and information and access to email support.

Who's involved

NM Support is a Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) initiative and is run by Turning Point, a leading addiction treatment, research and education organisation. NM Support is independent of the NMBA and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.
