The dedication of nurses on fronts like the COVID-19 pandemic has been remarkable. Nurses are proven to be essential to the health and moral well-being of our Commonwealth. Through it all, Pennsylvania nurses continue to rise to the challenge.
As you know, nurses have been called the heroes of the pandemic. But even heroes need help every now and again. We are tired and broken from a year that has tested us physically, emotionally, and spiritually. In the darkest days, our communities and leaders have leaned on nurses. Now it’s time for nurses to lean on them.
That’s why the Pennsylvania State Nurses Association (PSNA) is working hard for you. PSNA continues to monitor and promote legislative issues like the nurse licensure compact (NLC), the Patient Safety Act and safe staffing, and the Chief Nursing Officer of the Commonwealth. We stand by our values to advocate for nurses through collaborative, proactive, and ethical efforts.
So, to our state’s nurses: Thank you for all that you do! We see you. We hear you. We’re here for you. PSNA is proud to work tirelessly to make sure nurses are shaping the future of healthcare in Pennsylvania. We invite you to join our efforts today by visiting www.psna.org.
