Meet
Our Team

We aren’t some faceless corporation; we’re people, just like you. With years of experience & expertise, we’re here to power your healthcare processes through our UNA solutions.

Our Roots

The UNA Team has deep roots in the healthcare staffing and acute care delivery systems.  Creation of valid pre-employment screening tools coupled with an entrepreneurial spirit in creating technology that solves problems for both organizations and nurses is paramount to the team’s success.  It is also what drives UNA’s strategy today.

Our Vision

UNA’s vision is simple – create technology that does two things.  First, improve productivity and onboarding workflows, for hospitals and healthcare staffing companies through innovative technology.  Second, to improve the experience for all healthcare professionals in managing their credentials, sharing them with employers, and searching for new employment opportunities. We understand that talent is driving the new market, so we positioned our platform to embrace that change.
