The Nevada State Education Association works to promote, advance, and protect public education, the education profession, and the rights and interests of our members.

The Value of Membership

Salary and Benefits

Simply put, educators deserve professional pay for professional work — and the members of NSEA are the premiere advocates fighting to ensure you’re paid what you’re worth. This also means stopping legislative cuts to your benefits such as health insurance and retirement.


From the local school board to the state legislature, elected officials are making decisions that impact your schools — join our union and be a part of the discussion. NSEA members form the strongest voice advocating for educators and students in Nevada. We’re fighting against the standardized test regime, raising the need for fair evaluations, and standing in solidarity to secure fair wages for every worker in our schools.


Being an educator can be stressful — but you’re not alone. NSEA members have a support system of thousands of educators and NSEA staff who live and work in your district. Whether you’re a new teacher who needs advice on a difficult classroom or a food service worker that’s pushing back against student lunch debt – our union members are here to provide support, experience, and their voices to your needs.
