I'm 2 weeks away from the end of my program and will be doing a presentation on the advantages and disadvantage of union nursing. I need to hear from 3 nurses who are either part of a union or planning to join to find out why they think it benefits them and why they joined.
I also need to hear from 3 nurses who either have no interest in joining or were once part of a union and no longer are. Also, if you could state your reasons for not being a union member, that would be great.
When responding, if you could put a sentence or two regarding how long you've been a nurse, your specialty, and what area of the country you're in, that would be terrific.
I thank everyone in advance who is able to help me in this project. I really want to inform my nursing class about unions, what they are and the pros and cons so that they can make their own decision about whether to join.
