National Nurse Magazine

The Voice of National Nurses United

Nurse Talk features topics from National Nurse magazine on the show.

National Nurse magazine not only covers the activities of National Nurses United but also strives to produce hard-hitting news features and thoughtful analyses about nursing and the real ills plaguing the U.S. healthcare system.  You’ll find true stories from the front lines of care given by the nation’s 2.5 million registered nurses, as well as articles about nursing practice, public health, healthcare policy, and the healthcare industry. Through our partnership in reporting, we join them to  inspire a movement toward a humane and just healthcare system for all. The magazine is published 10 times per year by NNU, with combined issues in summer and winter.
