United to Protect our Profession and Our Patients


A union gives RNs the legal right to advocate as a collective for contracts that ensure safe working conditions, protect nurses’ rights, and improved wages and benefits so that we can focus on what we do best: caring for our patients.

National Nurses United is the largest union of RNs in the U.S., winning strong contracts, and proudly protecting the profession and our patients.
