Focus on the Future

This is a good time to review the principles upon which our nurses' movement was founded. Forged in the fights to get away from the American Nurses Association (ANA) and then to build a progressive national voice for nurses, these statements of principle can be reread here, appended to the presentation Quest for a Voice from the 2008 pre-convention program of the Massachusetts Nurses Association. Primary importance has always been given to winning enforceable RN staffing limits and then to creating a just healthcare system. To these ends, we built first the American Association of Registered Nurses (AARN) and then the National Nurses United (NNU).

Quest for a Voice
