Our Campaigns

Our campaigns are powered by frontline nurses. Here are tools for you to get informed and make a difference.

When nurses speak, the public, press, and lawmakers listen. When we speak with one voice, we can make the changes that our patients desperately need.

Safe, quality care depends on enough nurses and frontline caregivers to do the job. That’s why NYSNA fights for safe staffing on every unit, in every healthcare facility in the state. By uniting and organizing together, NYSNA nurses have won serious improvements to staffing through our contracts and the law. Safe staffing saves lives.

Since 2000, 28 hospitals have closed across our state. NYSNA is committed to stopping this by organizing comprehensive and strategic campaigns to fight hospital closings.

NYSNA's mission is to care for all New Yorkers. That's why we endorse a single-payer Medicare for All system that ensures access to high-quality care for everyone

NYSNA advocates for laws that set safe staffing levels, protect nursing and our patients, and guarantee healthcare for all. The future of New York healthcare is at stake.

NYSNA members have united and won contracts that set staffing ratios, quality care conditions, and professional pay and benefits.

Never has it been more important to stand side by side with our union sisters and brothers to fight for fairness and representation.

Nurses know that the climate crisis is also a health crisis. As frontline caregivers, we see firsthand the impacts of climate change, including increases in disease and catastrophic harm from extreme weather events. We have an important role to play in reducing harm to our patients—and the planet.

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 nurses make our voices heard in Albany to protect our patients and our practice.

Join us in the fight for stronger patient care and good RN standards.
