COVID ACTION TEAM TRAININGS

Last spring, during the peak of the pandemic, more than 400 NYSNA members from around the state participated in workshops to share strategies for collectively addressing the critical issues facing frontline nurses: lack of proper PPE and other Health and Safety protections, inadequate testing of staff and patients, inadequate staffing, and fair treatment.

With the resurgence bearing down on us, it’s more important than ever for members to be organized, informed and to take action.  Sign up today for a COVID Action Team Trainings.
