NEW YORK NURSE: September 2011
“I'm a registered nurse at St. Luke's - Roosevelt Hospital. For me, nursing is not just a profession, but a calling. A protected benefits fund is a vital asset to nurses in an increasingly challenging profession. NYSNA is taking the fight to the bargaining table to secure the benefits we need. Stabilizing the health benefits fund will allow us to continue to provide the care our communities need and deserve.”
— Gwendolyn (Gwen) Lancaster, RN, CCRN, MSN/Ed.
