The New York State Nurses Association is a union of 42,000 frontline nurses standing together for strength at work, our practice, safe staffing, and healthcare for all. We are New York's largest union and professional association for registered nurses.  

A new video chronicles NYSNA’s incredible work in 2013: we built a movement of nurses and patients to keep hospitals open for care, defend our public hospital system, organize new nurses, and fight for healthcare for all.

NYSNA nurses are uniting with patients to keep hospitals open for care, protect patient care, and stop the for-profit takeover of hospitals.

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.

Our union is led by frontline nurses elected by our members. We draw on the experience and opinions of hundreds of local leaders across our union to set the direction for our movement.
