Pennsylvania's Leading RN Association Joins CNA/NNOC, Nation's Largest Nurses' Union
Date:1/10/2008

ng working people, there is no more important time for nurses to unite for a stronger voice. The joining together of these two aggressive unions for registered nurses is great news," Sweeney said.

'Unite All Nurses Into One Powerful Organization'

"Our unity is a strong signal to nurses in Pennsylvania and other nurses across the nation of the opportunity for growth, a stronger voice in the workplace and the public arena. All nurses should be united in one powerful organization," said CNA/NNOC Executive Director Rose Ann DeMoro.

Eakin emphasized that the affiliation presents exciting new avenues for Pennsylvania RNs. "PASNAP increases its opportunities to improve the working lives of nurses and the care they deliver to patients by affiliating with CNA/NNOC as it has successfully fought for nurses and won vital patient safety measures such as California's nurse to patient ratio law."

California's landmark RN-to-patient ratio law was enacted in 1999, and has led to major improvements in patient safety and working conditions for RNs, Cortez noted. The final stage of the law's phase in occurred January 1, 2008. CNA/NNOC members have introduced similar measures in Arizona, Illinois, Maine, Ohio, and Texas. PASNAP is also promoting a ratio law.

"Every day, nurses work hard to save lives. We should never work short- staffed because it inevitably means that we cannot safely deliver care," said Eakin, citing the Pennsylvania bill, HB 171, sponsored by Tim Solobay, "mirroring the bill that CNA fought to make law in California."

"Now that the facts have been established that California's safe staffing bill has helped reverse the nursing shortage in California, Pennsylvanians should have to wait no more. What has been won in California should be won in Pennsylvania and nationwide for the sake of safe patient care," Eakin added.

Both organizations are also active in the national campaign for HR 676, which would establish a Medicare
