Sean Petty, a pediatric ER nurse and member of the board of directors of the New York State Nurses Association, comments on a political endorsement in his union.
I AM a nurse and a socialist. In March, the board of directors of my union, the New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA), voted to endorse Bernie Sanders for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination. We joined the country’s largest nurses’ union, National Nurses United, in supporting Sanders, who regularly calls himself a democratic socialist.
