Mobilize for member-based power, with a union that rejects corporate partnerships that sell out members, and opposes sweetheart deals with management.

Watch NNU Executive Director RoseAnn DeMoro outline the need for the Robin Hood tax and our vision for a progressive labor movement in an interview with legendary journalist Bill Moyers which aired nationally on PBS:
For far too long, the healthcare industry has ignored the needs of nurses and patients, focusing instead on generating wealth for corporate investors. According to the National Institute of Health, 98,000 patients die annually in US hospitals due to avoidable errors and staff shortages.
When nurses have a voice in health care, we all benefit. Nurses from the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee, United American Nurses, and Massachusetts Nurses Association launched the nation’s largest nurses union the 185,000-member-strong National Nurses United.
National Nurses United is a premiere organization of registered nurses and one of the nation’s fastest growing labor and professional organizations in the U.S. and a strong, progressive voice for nurses, patients and healthcare workers around the world. We are seeking a like-minded and experienced professional who believes in our mission with a personal dedication to social justice issues.
NNU is committed to Equal Opportunity, and to considering applicants of all ages, races, sexual orientations, national origins, ethnicities, and religions. We encourage people from diverse backgrounds and experiences related to our core organizational values and objectives to apply.
