The Division of Public Communications
The Voice of Nurses in Massachusetts
The MNA is the unrivaled voice of nursing in the Commonwealth. Wherever and whenever nursing is duscussed, MNA is at the center of that debate, and its members are the ones doing the talking.
The MNA Division of Public Communications raises public awareness of and support for nursing issues by making nurses and nursing front-page news throughout the state and the nation. The Division trains nurses to talk to the media, organizes letters-to-the-editor campaigns, and designs and places advertisments to support nursing and union issues.
The Division is responsible for producing the Massachusetts Nurse, a monthly publication that is the oldest news publication covering nursing issues in the state. The Division also operates and updates this Web site and works with local MNA bargaining unit to produce local newsletters, flyers, posters and any other communications tool MNA members might need to improve or defent their practice and workplace rights.
