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.

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

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
