The BC Nurses’ Union (BCNU) protects and advances the health, safety, social and economic well-being of our members, our profession and our communities. We are the largest nursing union in BC, representing more than 48,000 professional nurses and allied health care workers, providing care in hospitals, long-term care facilities and in the community. We speak up and speak out for safe, quality, public health care. We value and respect diversity, and pride ourselves in providing protection, representation, and services to all members. To promote evidence-based research for innovation within nursing, BCNU is proud to support research projects that align with the union’s core values of collectivity, democracy, equality, excellence, integrity, social justice, and solidarity.
