May is Nurse Week—And we are taking action to stand up for staff staffing and more!
During Nurse Week, the Nurse Alliance is proud to showcase a story each day of a nurse, elected by his or her colleagues, who is making a different in her profession – stay tuned! But we know PA nurses need more than an “employee appreciation” day – we need to speak up for what nurses need for our patients and ourselves. That includes asking for support from our elected officials to have safe staffing standards in Pennsylvania.
