Help to Elect More Pro-Nurse Leaders!

This year MNA leaders have endorsed a slate of candidates who are strong advocates for nurses and healthcare professionals. They support our priorities, including the Safe Patient Care Act, that would force hospitals to stop assigning unsafe numbers of patients.

Take action today! We need your help to ensure that these candidates are victorious in November. There are several ways you can get involved:

  • Volunteer with MNA. We need members to help with outreach to voters! Sign up by filling out this form.
  • Donate to the MNA Political Action Committee. Your grassroots donations go directly to candidates who will stand up to the powerful and well-funded hospital industry! Donate online here.
  • Support the MNA Online Auction. We are seeking items to be auctioned off! Proceeds will benefit the MNA PAC and Michigan Nurses Foundation (your choice). Click here to submit an item.

Now more than ever we must elect more pro-nurse, pro-healthcare professional leaders into office. We need your help to make that happen! Will you step up and take action?
