Letter of support from RN Student

11 Jun

My name is Stephanie Payne and I am a nursing student at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities and also work as a NST at UMMC-University campus.  I would just like for you and all the nurses to know that I believe in what the nurses are fighting for and I know many of my other nursing student friends are also in full support of the RNs.

I have come from a family of union workers and know first hand the meaning of picketing and standing up to management!  My dad was a member of the Northwest Airlines mechanic’s union, AMFA, and was one of the many mechanics on strike in the Summer/Fall of 2005.  My mom also currently works at Northwest (for over 35 years!) and is apart of the AFL-CIO union and been apart of a few strikes in her time.

If there is anything I can do for the Minnesota Nurses Association, please let me know! I believe the nurses are paving the way for how nursing care should be for future nurses like myself, and if there is any way I can show my support for this, I’d love to help.  Hope everyone is doing okay out there on the lines!

Thanks so much and, again, you have my full support!

    Thank you, Stephanie! Please share your feelings with other students, our future colleagues. And there is a group of UM medical students who feel as you do and that you could get with. They are led by Eduardo Medina, medi0067@umn.edu. Thanks for your support!
