The New York State Nurses Association is the voice for hundreds of thousands of frontline nurses. We are New York’s largest union and professional association for registered nurses.
Our staff works with our members to meet their needs through representation in the workplace, advocacy in the halls of government, and provision of quality continuing education and practice standards.
Support and enhance the practice of the registered professional nurse and improve the public’s health by providing leadership in changing the healthcare environment.
Nursing is evolving, innovative, accessible and reflects society’s diversity. Registered professional nurses are recognized as essential providers of healthcare services and the primary advocate for the public. Nurses understand the value of collective power and actively engage in organizations that promote nursing — practice and community involvement.
