Abstract

Nursing unions are currently on the rise in the United States and therefore their implications to the Nursing profession are becoming more relevant. This paper will explore the history of unions in the profession of Nursing, the goals of nursing unions, and evidence regarding the impact nursing unions have on patient outcomes. This background will give Nurse Educators (NEs) the information needed when considering including the topic of nursing unions into nursing curricula. Finally, the implications for NE practice when adding nursing unions into curricula will be outlined.
