Humanity is the heart of nursing

Replacing RN care with A.I. is unacceptable. NNU nurses are fighting back against unregulated and unproven technologies that put our patients and our profession at risk.

NNU delivers petition to CDC

On April 4, 2024, NNU delivered a petition, signed by over 5,600 individuals, urging CDC to ensure all necessary perspectives are added to HICPAC and its workgroup, including frontline health care workers, unions, patients advocates, and other public health experts.

Press releases

California Nurses Association members condemned the California State Assembly Appropriations Committee for capitulating to corporate health care and failing to pass A.B. 2200,  the California Guaranteed Health Care for All Act, also known as CalCare, at a time when public health programs are being drastically cut and a comprehensive, high-quality single payer program would be many Californians’ only lifeline for care.
A survey by National Nurses United found that artificial intelligence technology (A.I.) often contradicts and undermines nurses’ own clinical judgment and threatens patient safety. The findings underscore the urgent need for stricter regulation and greater input from nurses and health care staff on whether and how A.I. is deployed.
Registered nurses from across California will march and rally in Sacramento, Calif., on May 14 ahead of lobby visits with lawmakers at the state capitol to discuss nurses’ priority legislation.
Registered nurses at Washington Hospital in Fremont, Calif., voted in favor of ratifying a new four-year contract winning protections to improve patient safety and nurse retention at their facility.

Organize with National Nurses United to improve workplace standards through collective bargaining, reform national health care legislation, and make a difference for you and your patients.
