Infectious Disease

The first person infected with Ebola in the US - nurse Nina Pham - made infectious disease a major news story. And Ebola is just one high-profile example of the infectious diseases to which RNs can be exposed. NNU advocates for nurses to have the education, training, and personal protective equipment they need. Our successes include landmark mandatory Ebola guidelines in California and collective bargaining agreements with strong infectious disease protections.
