Every Patient Deserves a Registered Nurse!

Stop Albany’s Attack on Our Scope of Practice

A dangerous proposal in the NY State budget could have far-reaching implications that will directly affect patient care and RN scope of practice! Currently, legislators are considering a bill that will allow highly skilled nurses to be replaced by workers without the training and education of an RN. Non-nursing personnel would be allowed to take RN duties without proper training or pay. This would create a two-tiered health care system that prioritizes cutting costs and the profits of ambulance operators, hospitals, and home care agencies over patient care. We need to fight it. Download our flier and distribute it to your colleagues!

You can also download our action cards, or contact your NYSNA representative who can provide copies. Finally, make sure to join us for Caucus Weekend 2018, where we will tell politicians, “Hands off our practice!”
