Thank you to my buddy up yonder for sending me this powerpoint presentation that was presented at the November 2008 Constitutent Assembly of the American Nurses Association.
Did you know 21% of RNs are organized? I thought the number was somewhere between 12-15%.
See this file and tell me what you think about this focus and interest in organizing RNs. In your opinion, are the majority of RNs interested in being union members or part of a collective bargaining unit?
We are living in interesting times as RNs and my only comment is there are more appropriate and better "wars" to be waged and fought for individual nurses and on behalf of the professional practice of nursing in the United States than this focus on organizing RNs into collective bargaining units and the formation of yet another national RN union.
