National Nurses United will be comprised of the merging of the 3 existing unions: Cal. Nurses Assoc., Massachusetts Nurses Assoc. and United American Nurses. The 3 unions, already powerhouses among legislative organization for nursing professionals, plan to combine forces and unite under the new National Nurses United (NNU) title. Each member union will hold a national convention to ratify the merger, and the NNU will hold its founding convention in December 2009.
