In January, leaders of the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee (CNA/NNOC) and the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals (PASNAP) announced that the two unions have joined forces.
According to Executive Director Rose Ann DeMoro, the affiliation makes CNA/NNOC the largest nurses union in the country. By affiliating with PASNAP, which has 5,100 members, CNA/NNOC now represents more than 80,000 registered nurses in all 50 states.
PASNAP President Patty Eakin told a press teleconference that the affiliation with CNA would help the union organize even more nurses. According to Eakin, the affiliation creates opportunities to improve the working lives of nurses and the care they provide to patients across the country.
