Benefits





“Too many employers are trying to cut our benefits to pad their bottom line. We have to come together to stop them.”

 — Carmen Texeira, RN, Montefiore Medical Ctr.

NYSNA members have won strong retirement and healthcare benefits. Strong benefits help us retain veteran nurses and recruit the next generation of RNs. That’s good for patient care. Some employers don’t get it. They’re trying to cut our benefits. Connect with us to find out what you can do to stand for strong benefits.
