California Nurses Association
This two-part, in-person CE class provides a nursing practice regulatory review to guide your practice and examines the effects of technology-driven patient care on professional RN practice and safe staffing standards.
CE class: The “Forces of Magnetism”: Their Impact on RN Autonomy, Independent Judgment, and Advocacy
This CE course examines how the models of care, nursing leadership and management style promoted by magnet status designation schemes negatively impact the registered nurse’s ability to exercise independent professional judgment and advocate in the exclusive interest of the patient.
As nurses, our patients trust us to help and heal them when they sustain harm due to the conditions in their everyday lives. To honor that sacred trust, it is our duty to speak up for every human being’s right to a life free from violence and the traumas of war.
Organize with the California Nurses Association to improve workplace standards through collective bargaining, reform national health care legislation, and make a difference for you and your patients.
Hundreds of registered nurses rallied and marched in Sacramento, Calif. before meeting with legislators about nurses’ key issues and priority legislation.
