Nurses in California Celebrate 15 Years of Life Saving RN to Patient Ratios Law

California’s historic first-in-the-nation safe staffing ratios, sponsored by the California Nurses Association, took 13 years to win.

Director of Nurse Practice Safety for California Nurses Association, National Nurses United Gerard Brogan joins us for this podcast.
