Protecting the health of patients and our national health system, and promoting nurses and the nursing profession at the national level - and doing it effectively - is the job of the Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions.

We also push them to recognize the caring, human touch nurses bring which is so important to patients' healing. We work to make sure nurses' and patients' priorities are reflected in health and budgetary policy and when national politicians talk "health."

New York Professional Nurses Union:"The New York Professional Nurses Union has represented the nurses at Lenox Hill Hospital since 1985. The staff RNs knew that no big union could represent them better than they could represent themselves, so they started their own grassroots organization. This is a very precarious time for health care workers and nurses in particular: many of our colleagues in neighboring hospitals are discovering the devastating consequences of not having a union to represent them. Our leaders know firsthand of the challenges nurses face, since they are also nurses working side by side with our members. They aim to make a contribution to the hospital while preserving the respect of the people that make the hospital run."

We would like to thank everyone for their support of food, money, editorials and letters to various newspapers and politicians, as well as your emotional and spiritual support. We are overwhelmed by your kindness."

Nurse Active:"Hello! This page is largely the personal effort of Charlene Long, with some barely tolerated and largely unsought and unnecessary advice from her partner in crime, Bill Long. Both are registered nurses in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. Both work in acute care in a now small community hospital that serves a region of approximately 20,000 people in the northeastern part of the province. A small university town. A good place to live. Both became involved in the "Web" and social activism through activity with the Nova Scotia Nurses' Union. This page is part of an effort to move beyond (but not away from) that limited level of endeavour and to attempt to expose more nurses and others to the influences that are changing the world around us..........changes that we live with and adapt to every day, but seldom appreciate for their profundity and scope."

Nurses' Station:"The idea for the Nurses' Station Catalog was conceived in 1989. After searching the marketplace in response to customer inquiries, it became obvious that there were no catalogs of this type serving the nursing profession. To be sure, there were several catalogs offering nurse's uniforms and a smattering of professional items. But there weren't any catalogs at the time offering a range of gifts, clothing, professional items, name badges, shoes and scrubs for nurses. It took two years of hard work to gather samples and put a together a catalog of the most unique and high-quality items for nurses."
