This article in The New York Times by Nina Bernstein illustrates the importance of NYSNA's fight for quality patient care, safe staffing and affordable health care for nurses and their families.
Our fight is receiving national attention because we have presented a strong, united stand on these key issues.
No matter where you work: in a public or private hospital or other healthcare setting — this fight will help shape the future of health care in New York and our country.
We stand together with the nurses at Montefiore Medical Center, Mt. Sinai Medical Center and St. Luke's - Roosevelt Hospital in their fight for quality patient care and for fairness - for all of us.
