What Is UNANet?

UNA strives to keep its members connected through effective communication. We recognize informed and empowered members are the key to success and strength.

UNA operates UNANet, a secure internal network, for communications and record keeping. As a UNA member, you are entitled to a free UNANet account, providing access to FirstClass forums, your own UNA email account and the Data Management System (DMS Web) for updating personal information, and submitting expense claims and forms. UNANet’s FirstClass forums are used by nurses to discuss everything from nursing practice issues to detailed questions about UNA’s collective agreements.

Windows 7/8 Users

Windows does not quit FirstClass when you close the last window - the program is still running. It will not open a new FirstClass window or login if you click the icon on your desktop. Check your System Tray (the far right of the Task Bar at the bottom of your screen) and either launch the program from there, or quit it and launch it from your desktop icon.

To avoid this issue - be sure to quit FirstClass when you are finished, do not close the window.

Please call Systems at 1-866-492-8584 if you experience any difficulties with setup or connecting.
