It isn’t easy work, but it’s so important to keeping our families and loved ones healthy. That skilled care and attention from a nurse makes all the difference in patient outcomes—it is often literally a matter of life and death.
You will find nurses in a wide variety of workplaces, including clinics, acute care hospitals, public health departments, schools, community health centers, nursing homes, and more. In each of these settings, nurses work tirelessly to heal the sick, provide care for those who are suffering, and do everything possible to prevent the spread of infectious illnesses.

Every day, nurses are on the front lines fighting to keep our communities safe and healthy.
Without nurses in our communities, what would our world look like?
It’s a scary thought. That’s why SEIU 521 members are proud to call the many different kinds of nurses in our ranks our sisters and brothers in our union. It’s why we stand alongside them and fight to make sure they have the staffing, resources, and respect they need to keep our families and our loved ones safe and healthy.
Join us in recognizing National Nurses Week from May 6 – May 12 and also continue fighting alongside the nurses in our union every day out of the year to make our workplaces and communities better for us all.
