The California Nurses Association / National Nurses United is the largest union and professional organization of registered nurses in the United States and a strong, progressive voice for nurses, patients, and healthcare workers around the world.
We advocate and organize around the Social/Economic/Environmental/ and Climate Justice issues that affect the quality of life and health for our patients and our communities.
We are seeking like-minded and experienced professionals who believe in our mission and have a personal dedication to social justice issues.
For far too long, the healthcare industry has ignored the needs of nurses. During their work lives, nurses at non-union hospitals are at the beck and call of the hospital 24 hours a day. At non-union hospitals, nurses have been forced to work mandatory overtime, even when they are so exhausted that patient care could suffer. When nurses from many non-union hospitals face retirement years, there is no pension plan. After nurses spend their entire work lives caring for others, when they retire from non-union hospitals, nurses are unable to afford adequate medical care themselves.
