Your CRONA team is at the bargaining table this week, working hard to make the hospitals a place Nurses want to come and stay. Thanks to all who have written us. Here’s another Nurse’s story:
“I work a part-time position. But in all honesty, the only reason I have stayed at Stanford for so long is that I have been able to work part-time. Why does Stanford think it’s okay to use the hospital as a training ground for nurses to come and leave? So many nurses leave because they can’t work the long hours. Stanford needs to look at the cost of this turnover in the long run instead of the short run.” CRONA agrees. Nurses will stay if they can work sustainable schedules.
