NEW YORK NURSE: October 2012
Last May, we voted to change NYSNA and give bedside nurses the power to set our direction.
Are you ready to use that power – to mobilize front line nurses and win safe staffing?
Join nurses from across the state at the NYSNA Biennial Conference to make your voice heard.
Hospital administrators and anti-union politicians are coming after our benefits and putting patient care at risk like never before.
Nurses are changing NYSNA to meet that challenge, defend our rights, and win safe staffing. But we have more work to do.
Join us at the Biennial Conference and:
It’s time to do your part to make NYSNA a stronger voice for nurses where you work, in your community, and in Albany.
Many CE sessions will be held during the convention. All members are welcome to attend all CE sessions – including the CE sessions held during the Congress and the Delegate Assembly Grand Finale.

“I’m going to be a part of the change – the new NYSNA. I don’t want other people to make decisions for me. I want to make my own decisions. I’ll see you there.”
— Lindella Artman, RN, Queens Hospital Center/ HHC
"If there is one thing our members and our patients need, it is safe staffing. The NYSNA Biennial Conference will provide a strong foundation for the Safe Staffing Campaign – and that's why I am attending."
— Patty Donahue, RN, Ellis Hospital, Schenectady
“Safe staffing is THE issue for nurses at the bedside — it’s time we put ALL the resources of our union to work to make pass the ratio law and get the staffing our patients deserve. That’s why I’m going to the NYSNA convention: to make my voice heard for safe staffing. NYSNA is your union. Make your voice heard too!”
— Audrey Amsterdam, RN and Folake Adekunle-Wimbish, RN, The Brooklyn Hospital Center
“I’ll be there… To promote involvement in a membership driven association, to participate in positive change that protects nurses, and to be a part of nursing history!”
— Anthony Ciampa, RN, New York-Presbyterian
“NYSNA is moving in a new direction. I support it and want to be part of the movement to improve our working conditions and provide the safest possible environment for our patients. The Biennial Conference will definitely help to move this agenda — that’s why I’m going.”
— Carol Ann Lemon, RN, Ellis Hospital, Schenectady
