The National Nurses United (NNU) AFL-CIO, the nation’s largest nurses’ union and professional association, seeks an experienced Educator to assist in developing labor oriented educational programs nationwide for Registered Nurses. Programs will emphasize the political economy of healthcare restructuring and the clinical and technological impacts of healthcare restructuring on both patients and the Registered Nurses who provide their care.
The NNU, AFL-CIO is organizing the movement for Registered Nurse power to transform the market-driven healthcare industry in the United States into a health care system driven by patient needs.

NNU provided critical leadership in the AFL-CIO’s decision to endorse a single-payer healthcare system based on “updating and expanding Medicare benefits” for all Americans.
After appropriate orientation, the Educator will design and teach one day courses on health care restructuring, issues impacting nursing practice and basic principles of political economy for Registered Nurses.
