OUR COMMITMENT TO PATIENT CARE WON’T BE SILENCED
What’s happening at SPNN right now is historic.
By the thousands, Sharp RNs have taken action to fight for our patients:
- Attending negotiations by the hundreds
- Calling for Sharp to retain and recruit experienced nurses
- Linking up by the thousands on social media
- Signing up nearly 1,000 new members in just a few weeks
- Taking our patient advocacy to the media and the world
- Planning our Real Sharp Experience event to challenge Sharp executives to meet their own ideal: “The best place to work and the best place to receive care”
Now in an attempt to silence our voices, Sharp executives have canceled “The Sharp Experience.” This shows how much collective power we have when we stand united for change.
We must remain united and force them to address our concerns.
Our intention was always to highlight the crisis in nurse retention and recruitment at Sharp and its impact on patient care—not to cancel “The Sharp Experience.”
We hope this means that Sharp executives have heard our concerns and plan to invest in recruitment and retention of nurses rather than a corporate pep rally.
But we will still hold our Real Sharp Experience event because we must press forward to win for our patients.
See below for event details—the times have changed.
