New nurses union sets aggressive agenda

Minneapolis Star Tribune, June 9, 2010

Over the years, some nurses had become increasingly disenchanted with the national union that represents nurses, thinking the American Nurses Association had drifted away from the daily concerns of bedside nurses. Last year, a breakaway group banded together to form a rival union: National Nurses United. In just a few months, it has grown to 155,000 members, approaching the century-old ANA's 180,000. It is now mobilizing across the country with one major goal: limits on the number of patients assigned to each nurse, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
