As you know, nurses throughout New York State are working hard to pass the Safe Staffing for Quality Care Act to set safe staffing standards in our hospitals.
We are gearing up to make a final push to get this important piece of legislation passed.
NYSNA is a founding member of the NY Campaign for Patient Safety, a coalition of nurse, union, consumer protection, and healthcare groups across New York that are fighting for a safe staffing law. With a new, powerful coalition behind us, legislators are supporting the Safe Staffing for Quality Care Act like never before. And the politics in our state are finally lining up to make passing staffing ratios within our reach.
Contact Crystal Rogers firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP for our rally in Queens. Your attendance is important! NYSNA members will be out in force to make sure lawmakers in Albany understand that it is essential for them to pass the Safe Staffing for Quality Act this year.
NYSNA members will join together with coalition members, patients and allies for a statewide
safe staffing days of action at 9 different locations throughout New York State.
We can’t wait to see you at one of these safe staffing rallies!
In the meantime, please take a minute to call Albany lawmakers and ask that they must pass the Safe Staffing for Quality Care Act this month! With one phone call you can add your voice to this critical matter.
CALL: (844) 534-SAFE to leave a message that we will deliver to your State Senator and to Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie.
Say your NAME.
Where you LIVE.
Why safe STAFFING MATTERS.
And that the Safe Staffing for Quality Care Act must be passed now!
With the end of legislative session fast approaching, NOW is the time to do our part to win safe staffing in every unit and in every facility.
Stay tuned for more updates and ways that you can contribute to making safe staffing and quality care for all New Yorkers a reality!

Our MAY MEETING saw the Official Gavel being passed from Outgoing President Dave Schleyer to Our New President John Louthan. John accepted it with honor and Thanked Dave for his many years of service. Dave will remain on as the Parade Chairman. John got right to work, informing us of the new changes of the Executive Board and also adding Boro Delegates to our organization, so are there any of you out there would like to step up and help?, well here is your chance.
John touched on the many events we will be hosting throughout the year (see this website for all of them). He stressed the Boat Ride would be on a Friday Night and go for four hours. He hopes our many members will help with publicizing the event. Maybe sons and daughters of members can attend, any help would be appreciated!
John then closed the Meeting and received a rousing applause from the 40 or so in attendance.
His first task as President was to draw the corresponding numbers for the Scholarship Drawing. Each number represented an applicant. 11 numbers were drawn. Those numbers were matched with the names and then they were announced by Charlie Messemer. We congratulate all of the winners. Go to Our Scholarship Page
