A Message from the President
PASNAP is a union of dedicated nurses and allied health professionals. We believe our work environment is our patients’ care environment and that our patients get the best care when we have a strong collective voice to advocate for them and for ourselves.
We formed our own union, the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals (PASNAP), in 2000. The process was challenging as we left our previous unions to create the union we wanted, one that champions the rights and needs of the bedside caregiver.
We promote legislation in Harrisburg and Washington for safe staffing. Safe nurse-to patient-ratios will help retain nurses at the bedside and will reduce death and injury to patients.
In addition to bargaining contracts that set standards for health care workers, we work to gain universal access to high quality and affordable health care for everyone. We support Medicare for All.
I encourage you to go through our website and contact us with any questions you have about who we are, what we do, or how to join. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
