DCNA Supports RN Strike at Providence Hospital

Thanks to all the DCNA members that came out to support the nurses at Providence Hospital for their 1 day strike. The strike protested the hospital’s refusal to address critical issues of health and safety concerns for patients and nurses, including inadequate Ebola preparedness, unsafe staffing and high staff turnover. The walkout coincided with NNU actions in 14 states to highlight demands  that all hospitals institute stronger Ebola safety measures.

Welcome

The District of Columbia Nurses Association (DCNA) is the professional organization for registered nurses who live and/or work in the District. DCNA is affiliated with National Nurses United, American Federation of Labor - Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) and the Washington Metropolitan Council.

DCNA negotiates contracts that make sure nurses’ pay is competitive and commensurate with experience, years of service, responsibility, autonomy, and education. DCNA contracts provide guaranteed benefits, equitable policies, fair representation, job security, and practical solutions to everyday workplace problems affecting the professional lives of nurses.

DCNA encourages its members to get involved in leadership roles at the local and national level. Within the DCNA framework, nurses gain experience as volunteer lobbyists, media spokespersons, union advocates, and community activists.
