Nursing Practice

Our nursing practice is under attack. Short staffing, de-skilling, unit restructuring, and the technological arms race can take away our time from the bedside and harm patient care. 

NYSNA nurses are standing together to safeguard our practice through collective advocacy.

NYSNA offers free and low-cost classes for members, including free online state mandated courses on Infection Control and Child Abuse.

Caring for a patient shouldn’t turn YOU into a patient. But the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) considers in-patient healthcare settings to have some of the highest worker injury rates of all U.S. workplaces.

A Protest of Assignment (POA) is a written document notifying the employer that a nursing assignment is unsafe.

Please read NYSNA's Nursing and Education Practice's Position Statements below.

Protect our practice and our patients with information about workplace violence, mandatory overtime, flu regulations, and more.

Whenever there’s a disaster, nurses respond with heroism and skill. The skills required in the nursing process are the same ones needed in disaster relief.

NYSNA’s Statewide Peer Assistance for Nurses (SPAN) is a confidential education, support, and advocacy program for ALL nurses licensed in New York State.
