Nurse's Conference Was Big Success

Nearly 100 Detroit-area nurses, including some MichUHCAN members, attended a conference presented by the California Nurses Association on August 20. Participants were informed about how corporate America is driving the changes in health care that directly affect working nurses each day through such things as understaffing, overwork and marked decline in quality of patient care. Nurses learned about strategies to protect themselves and their patients and heard repeatedly the message of becoming empowered through conviction, cooperation, and coalition. Several nurses met with Kit Costello, President, CNA, on August 21, to discuss near-future organizing goals for Detroit nurses. Expect to see more from Detroit nurses in the months and years to come.
