On March 11, 2015, Kim Greenwood, a nurse who was recently laid off from the DC Healthy Start Program, spoke at the Committee on Health and Human Services Oversight Hearing for the Department of Health. She spoke about the importance of restoring funding to the DC Healthy Start Program so that nurses can resume their home visits to the pregnant mothers and children of Wards 5,6,7 and 8. 

 

 

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.
