We are registered nurses.

But we are also so much more.

What our RNs are Saying

  • RNs/NPs work shifts longer than 16 hours on a too regular basis.

  • RNs and NPs worked more than 300,000 hours of overtime in 2019-20.

  • They are the only nursing provider who can care for the most stable patient to the most complex and unpredictable.

  • They fight every day to protect and advocate for their patients within a poorly designed, under-resourced system. 

  • Inadequate staffing and exhaustion is association with poor patient outcomes.

  • A long-term care RN can be responsible for up to 150 residents - in one night shift.  

  • Nurses are more likely to face workplace violence than other first responders including police officers.
