The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) is inviting nurses and midwives to view the draft Code of conduct for nurses and Code of conduct for midwives (the Codes), and have your say before the documents are finalised.

The Codes set out the legal requirements, professional behaviour and conduct expectations for nurses and midwives in all practice settings in Australia. The Codes describe the principles of professional behaviour that guide safe practice, and clearly outline the conduct expected of nurses and midwives by their colleagues and the broader community.

The Survey of the Codes closes 10 March 2017.
