Keeping Nurses at the Bedside

The Keeping Nurses at the Bedside Act was introduced at the legislature in February and already, hospitals are telling legislators that, by giving nurses a voice in staffing decisions, “people will die”.

Email your legislators and tell them that nurses and patients across Minnesota need their support to pass the Keeping Nurses at the Bedside Act

Paid Family Medical Leave

Right now, Paid Family and Medical Leave is moving through both the Minnesota House and Senate. It has a real chance to be passed this year, but we need to make sure our lawmakers get it over the finish line and ensure it’s the kind of strong, statewide, state-run program Minnesotans deserve.

Contact your Senator to urge them to support a strong, statewide and state-run Paid Family and Medical Leave program
