National Nurses United today condemned far-right, discriminatory state legislative attacks in Arkansas and North Carolina to restrict health care services for transgender youths as a “disgraceful attack on the human right to health care.”
We nurses know and believe that this is the best bill at the right time for moving America forward. Jayapal’s legislation is the most comprehensive to date, including all primary care, hospital and outpatient services

To claim our power, hundreds of nurses came together online Sept. 9–12, along with some incredible activists and allies, during the first-ever virtual convention for the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee (CNA/NNOC). The convention, entitled “Year of the nurse,” underscored how deeply our struggles are united, across states, across backgrounds, and even around the world, as we fight for transformative change.
