Mr. Bialke is eager to support and implement plans set in place by MNA members to make sure the voices of patients and frontline nurses are heard.

I want to see the Minnesota Nurses Association continue to play a critical role in shaping the agenda for nurses, for labor unions, for health care and for our communities. As we can find new ways to engage our 20,000 members and unleash their creativity, Minnesota Nurses Association will expand its leadership role and create power for its members," he said.
