The NBNU believes that educating and informing our members is the best way to defend working conditions, enhance members’ understanding of their rights at work and develop leadership skills.
In all its education and communications programs, the Union strives to listen as well as to speak. In this spirit, members are always welcome to direct ideas or suggestions to our Research and Education Officer, Jeff Hull.
Some educational opportunities include but are not limited to:
- Eastern Labour School is a biennial educational event hosted by NBNU, NSNU, PEINU or NLNU on a rotational basis. Nurses from all four provincial unions join together for two days of education sessions on various topics.
- CFNU Education day is held at the biennial CFNU convention. These education sessions are on a variety of topics and are presented by union staff from all the attending member organizations, as well as special guest educators.
