Nurses across Pennsylvania are uniting to advocate for safe staffing, quality care, and a voice for nurses in the decisions about our patients and profession.
Our experience as frontline nurses, before and since the pandemic, teaches us that our laws and lawmakers have a great impact on the health of our patients and on the kind of care we deliver. And right now, too many of them aren’t with us. Though we didn’t train to be advocates in politics, we know that patient advocacy means speaking up everywhere decisions about healthcare and nursing are being made.

Breaking Point: Pennsylvania’s Patient Care Crisis
We surveyed 1,000 nurses who work in hospitals, schools, rehabilitation facilities, long-term care and more — from Scranton to Erie to Pittsburgh and Philadelphia — and the results show a clear crisis in patient care with nurses spending less time at the bedside, chronic understaffing, and high turnover.
