Purpose Statement:
The goal of this “Nursing Member Leader Training” workshop is to
develop identified nurses into nursing leaders within their union and
their workplace.
Participants will experience what it means to become a successful
member-driven organization. In a member-driven union, power is
built and victories are won by member involvement. Learn together
through working together! Understand the value of collective power
to promote nursing practice and community involvement. Part 2
continues to build on the nursing leaders’ tools for patient care that
were learned in Part 1 of this leader training.
Workshop Objectives:
At the conclusion of Part 2, the learner will be able to:
1. Explore the range of tools and strategies to advocate and organize
to improve patient care and improve working conditions.
2. Describe how nurse leaders can meet their union’s ethical and
legal obligations to members including Duty of Fair
Representation, Weingarten Rights, and Grievance procedures.
