The primary goal of NBNU is to advocate on behalf of its members. It is through political advocacy that the voices of New Brunswick Registered Nurses and Nurse Practitioners are heard. On behalf of its members, NBNU campaigns for increased patient safety, fair and equitable working conditions in all healthcare settings and the continuance of publicly-funded, high-quality healthcare for all Canadians to name a few.

By lobbying government for changes and improvements to existing legislation and proposing new legislations that will positively affect our healthcare system, NBNU ensures that elected representatives are held accountable to the best interests of the public and its members.
