The NSNU Board of Directors has been strongly committed to sound
strategic planning processes since its first Strategic Plan in 2002.
Through situation analysis, and a critical review of previous strategic
directions, as well as input from NSNU staff, the Board works to develop
new strategic directions that are current, essential and achievable.
This long term plan is aimed at charting a course for the future that
will address the mounting challenges in health care delivery which
impact our members directly.
A Strategic Plan cannot, of course, include everything that is
important to the Union. Rather, a strategic plan should focus on “make
or break” issues. These are issues or conditions that must be addressed
for an organization to remain relevant and responsive. The responses to
these “make or break” issues are referred to as Strategic Directions.
The following document is a brief introduction to the Mission, Vision
and Value Statements established during the planning sessions, as well
as our objectives and the key Strategic Directions.
