Nevada State Board of Nursing:"The Nevada State Board of Nursing is a seven-member board appointed by the governor of Nevada consisting of four registered nurses, one licensed practical nurse, one certified nursing assistant, and one consumer member."

12/25/2002: Nevada: Traveling nurses finding plenty work in Las Vegas:"James Brooks came to Las Vegas two years ago to begin a 13-week stint as a traveling emergency room nurse. He hasn't left. The statewide nursing shortage has made traveling nurses such as Brooks a hot commodity. He can work in Las Vegas for as long as he wants, often making twice as much money as a regular nurse. "Nurses are so short everywhere that you can find a spot you like and just stay there,"said Brooks, who came from Michigan and now works at Summerlin Hospital Medical Center."


WASHOE - ST. MARY'S Organizing Campaign:"Local 3 also has a long history of representing health care professionals, including nurses. The union currently represents about 400 nurses and other medical professionals in four California counties: Alameda, Plumas, Santa Clara and Tuolumne. Most work at large county hospitals such as Highlands Hospital in Oakland, Valley Medical Center in San Jose, Tuolumne General Hospital in Sonora, Calif. Some work at other county facilities such as out-patient clinics, psychiatric units and jails. Nurses at Elko General Hospital in Elko, Nev., recently voted overwhelmingly to be represented by Local 3. The union's many years of representing employees in the health care industry have given it the experience and expertise to successfully represent all types of medical professionals. The union, which has offices and credit union branches throughout its jurisdiction, employs experienced agents skilled in contract enforcement, contract negotiations, grievance handling and arbitrations. These agents are backed by a staff of attorneys experienced in both public- and private-sector legal issues."


March 01, 2002: Nevada: Doctors, nurses will be harder to insure:"Citing factors that ranged from increased expenses to skyrocketing losses in the state's courtrooms, only two of the 15 companies currently licensed to insure Nevada's doctors and nurses said they will offer unrestricted medical coverage when their existing policies expire, according to statements submitted by insurers earlier this week."


Thursday November 22nd, 2001: Nevada, Reno: 36 Washoe Med nurses strike for a day Care not affected, hospital says:"Picketers carried signs while shouting and waving to motorists Wednesday on sidewalks around Washoe Medical Center during the second 24-hour nursing union strike at the hospital in five months."

September 20, 2001: Nevada: Union to take firing of nurses to state:"Members of Nevada's largest nurses union, angered over the firing of two colleagues from Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center for refusing assignments, were expected to file formal complaints today with the state Board of Nursing against two supervisors. The two fired nurses say the assignments compromised safety by asking them to care for too many patients at one time. Sunrise officials responded that the nurses were fired for refusing the assignments without first hearing a report from the night staff."


October 27, 1999: Nevada: Budget nurses, Staffing reportedly driven by bottom line:"One thing seems basic in any hospital -- to have enough nurses to take care of the patients. But in light of cost-saving measures and a nursing-shortage crisis, many nurses who bear the brunt of the increased workload say that basic principle is being violated. "Any hospital will tell you they are staffed on acuity level need, but that's not true," registered nurse Theresa Morrow said."


From Tailhooking to union-busting to strike-breaking, 1999 was a busy year:"Citing an increasingly hostile climate of fear and intimidation, the union this week withdrew its petition for next week's vote to represent about 400 technical workers at Northern Nevada's largest hospital. In July, by a vote of 315 to 206, the union won an election to represent about 600 Washoe Med nurses. Two more ballots were held last week. A small group of about three dozen skilled maintenance workers opted against unionization last week."

2002-2000 News On the Nursing Shortage

1999 News on The Nursing Shortage

Preparing for Battle: What YOU can do for YOU, Sicker patients, reduced staffing, longer hours, and increased responsibilities—by Deborah Lynne, RN, BSN:"As Registered Nurses, few of us think of the hospital we work in as a battlefield, or of ourselves as soldiers. But the truth is, there are more similarities than you might think. We show up for our shift each day, not knowing what challenges we might encounter. Our job requires us to be in the moment at all times, and to make split second decisions on the run. What we do or don’t do can mean the difference between life and death. We often work under extreme stress, yet must remain calm and in control. Although there are others who function in a supportive capacity, we are the ones on the frontline."
