Historical information
Button distributed to and worn by Australian Nursing Federation (ANF) members working as school nurses, and possibly distributed to members of the public. The ANF Victorian Branch bargains on behalf of nurses working in primary and secondary schools, particularly those employed by the Victorian Department of Education and Training, as well as those working in Catholic and independent schools.

The Royal Australian Nursing Federation became the Australian Nursing Federation (ANF) in 1989, and then became the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation in 2013, suggesting this badge is from the 1990s or early 2000s.
