NYSNA members across the state are standing up and fighting back in order to protect the safety of patients and frontline nurses during the COVID-19 crisis.
We are launching a series of special workshops to support members who are stepping up to advocate for their colleagues and collectively address the critical issues facing frontline nurses, including PPE, testing, staffing, safe workplaces, and fair treatment.
