Mobilizing for Safer Care in New Jersey

The New Jersey Nurses Union (NJNU), was created by working nurses at Saint Barnabas Medical Center who desired strong representation in all areas of professional concern. Since its inception in 1991, NJNU has proven effective in negotiating their contracts as well as making certain the terms and conditions are upheld.

  • Tuition Reimbursement 2015-2016 SBMC Members

    NJNU has resolved the tuition reimbursement issue in our CBA. Members who are pursuing a Ph.D or DNP degree in 2015 or 2016 and were denied reimbursement, will now be eligible for reimbursement. If you were pursuing other degrees and your tuition reimbursement for 2015 was charged against your 2016 allotment because your grades or paperwork were not submitted until after December 10, 2015, you will now be eligible for that reimbursement which should have been allotted to 2015 so that you do not lose your full 2016 tuition allotment. If you have had a problem with your Ph.D or DNP reimbursement, or had your 2015 tuition reimbursement charged against your 2016 allotment, please contact me at

  • Safe Staffing

    Dear Members:
    Unfortunately, we have been informed that the Senate Health Committee will NOT be voting on S1183, our Safe Staffing bill on Monday Dec 21st. Thank you for all of your hard work and commitment but instead of going to Trenton next week, we will refocus our energy on moving Safe Staffing into the next Legislative Session after January 20th.
    NJNU wishes everyone safe and happy holidays.
