Membership has its privileges!

I've recently returned to bedside nursing at a small hospital in Northern New York. It is a unionized facility, which, quite frankly, did not thrill me at first. I've worked in both unionized and non-unionized environments, and my personal preference was the non-unionized spot. The only things that my old union ever did for me were to gouge a huge chunk out of my paycheque and guarantee that I'd be the first one laid off when the axe fell.

I'm singing a new tune these days. Membership in my current union also confers membership in the American Nurses' Association. Members of the American Nurses' Association receive a 25% discount when ordering Crocs through the company's website.

We shall overcome ... in comfortable footwear!
