As nurses, we need a strong voice to provide the best possible care for our patients and residents. Forming a union gives you that voice to improve your job and the care you give.

“Being part of a nurses union has really opened my eyes to what’s possible for our profession — it’s put us in a position where instead of begging for much needed changes that we’re told our hospital might not have the resources for, we’re actually collaborating with administration to implement solutions to raise the standard of care our patients are getting.”

Take Action for Safe Staffing in Our Hospitals

We are building to majority support for the Patient Safety Act in the legislature for the first time ever.

The Patient Safety Act will establish safe staffing standards in every hospital, and provide transparency and accountability to patients and their families. Not only is it better for patients, it’s better for hospitals too — the cost-savings of improved care more than cover the costs of hiring additional staff.

Today, a bi-partisan coalition of the PA House agrees with us. More than 70 Representatives have signed on to support this critical law, and we believe it’s possible to reach a majority of support in this legislative session.

You can help make that happen! Download our Nurse Lobby Packet and learn how you can reach out to your legislators to help gain support and co-signers for the Patient Safety Act!

Take Action for Safe Staffing for Nursing Homes

For the first time, we have a clear path to safe staffing in Pennsylvania nursing homes—but we haven’t won yet.

Our nursing homes are in crisis, due in part to outdated regulations that haven’t been touched in 25 years—until now. After years of nursing home workers sounding the alarm on dangerous staffing and workplace conditions, Governor Wolf has finally announced long-overdue reform to these regulations that will save lives, give voice to caregivers, and move us closer to the transformation that’s needed to ensure safe, high-quality care in every Pennsylvania nursing home.

But our work isn’t done. We need to keep up the pressure throughout the regulatory review process to finalize and implement 4.1, and we need the legislature to pass permanent rate increases to invest in frontline bedside care & caregivers.

Sign up to visit your legislators to tell them to take action to fund safe staffing for nursing homes and hold nursing homes accountable to their funding going to the bedside.
