I've been an RN in SC for about 7 years now. Recently decided to expand my skills and go into critical care (lovin' it so far). I ran across this site while looking for info on nursing unions. I want to know how they work, how many there are in the usa, how to start one, etc. If anyone knows some central web site on the subject, please let me know. Is there some national alliance among nursing unions? Do they provide support to one another and help new ones get going?

Welcome to the site! Unions are discussed from time to time here. At the top right of each page, there is a gray toolbar. Try clicking on the Help tab, then Search. You might see if the term 'unions' turns up anything interesting.
