Nursing Strikes

  1. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me where I might find a sort of "log" of nursing strikes. I am particularly interested in the mid 90s on, but a full graph history would also be helpful. I've done a full search through government statistics of all relevant sites i can think of without luck, and through google again without luck. Can anyone steer me on this?

    Check with unions that represent Nurses, check with State nursing associations, check with state boards of nursing. Check with newspaper morgues. This sounds like a daunting task.

    I don't believe you will find a ready made graph. Or even find this information preassembled. You will most likely have to compile the data yourself from various sources. The only way you might find such a compilation or graph is if someone else has already done this reasearch.

    You might start with a CINAHL search and then move on to the sources I mentioned above.

    Check with what ever gov. agency that regulates strikes. Maybe the AFL CIO.

    That is about all I can think of.
