About NNOC

The National Nurses Organizing Committee (NNOC) is a national union and professional organization for Registered Nurses, Advance Practice Nurses, and RN organizations who want to pursue a more powerful agenda of advocacy, promoting the interests of patients, direct care nurses, and RN professional practice. NNOC is proud to be an affiliate member of National Nurses United, organizing in Florida, Illinois, Maine, Missouri, Pennsylvania, and Texas.

NNOC was founded by the California Nurses Association in the spring of 2004 in response to an overwhelming demand by direct-care nurses for a national vehicle to address the crisis faced by RNs, and to achieve improvements modeled on CNA's accomplishments. Learn more about CNA's successes here.

Through the NNOC, RN organizations and non-organized RNs are able to work together to achieve dramatic progress for direct care nurses and patients in their facilities, their communities, their states, and at the national level. These are fundamental elements of the NNOC founding program:

  • Direct-Care Nurse Control
  • Collective Bargaining and Effective Professional Representation
  • A Direct-Care Nurse Voice in the Legislature and Regulatory Arenas
  • Nursing Practice and Collective Patient Advocacy
  • Building RN Power Through New Organizing
  • A National Network of Direct-Care RNs, Supported by CNA's Experience and Expertise
