BCNU is committed to defending nurses\' individual rights as well as the nursing profession, and they are the only health care union that has a long and successful track record of gains in wages and working conditions. Their four equity caucus groups include the Aboriginal Leadership Circle, the LGBT Caucus, the Mosaic of Colour Caucus, and the Workers with Disabilities Caucus. They were established according to the same principles of the Human Rights Code of BC.

As a result, these members are empowered and often become more active in the union.
