The NSNU provides education sessions and seminars at the Local, Regional and Provincial levels.  

Local Education Sessions, approximately 1-2 hours in length, must be requested by the Local. 

To request a Local Education Session, or learn more about what sessions are offered, please contact NSNU's Education and Technology Officer, chad.obrien [at]

Regional Seminars are conducted by the Union upon direction of the Board.  Topics are chosen by the Board and in the past have included Abuse of Nurses, Occupational Health and Safety, and Health Reform.

Provincial Education Sessions occur at the NSNU’s Annual General Meeting, devoted to an educational program on an issue, or issues, identified by the Board

On December 7, 2023, the NSNU held a pre-retirement information session with the goal of helping NSHEPP members better understand their pension plan and what to expect as their retirement date approaches. You can watch a recording of that session by clicking the button below:
