The National Federation of Nurses Coalition (NFNc) is a leading national labor coalition and collaborative voice for registered nurses. Our work is driven by the priorities of our members—the nurses associations and the individual nurses they represent.
National Federation of Nurses (NFN) was founded in 2008 as a national union to provide a unique, more inclusive option for nurses and model for national unions. The NFN has now transitioned into a coalition model and we remain dedicated to respect the members associations’ sovereignty, transparency and strong collaboration to meet the needs of nurses everywhere.
We take action through our new affiliation with American Federation of Teachers Nurses and Health Professionals (AFTNHP) at the local, state and national level to improve working conditions for nurses and achieve better patient outcomes. Our goal is ultimately to create a strong, educated and stable nursing workforce, and, thereby, improve health care delivery in the United States.
The NFNc exists to strengthen and assist member associations, and to establish and collaborate on an effective national labor agenda that supports and advances the economic and general welfare, workplace conditions and practice of registered nurses through collective bargaining and shared decision-making. Our goal is ultimately to create a strong and stable nursing workforce, and improve health care delivery in the United States.
