President's Message

Nursing is a rewarding profession, but the working conditions can be punishing. Overcapacity leading to hallway nursing is a significant problem, as is violence, understaffing, and mandatory overtime. These and many other issues that reduce the quality of worklife for nurses and negatively impact patient care are discussed here.

However, we do not dwell upon the negative. We move beyond these issues to explore positive practices underway from coast to coast where nurses are working with their employers and unions to make things better. Think Nursing! is about hope and change.
