Nurses at Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center sought out the Illinois Nurses Association's collective bargaining resources, and stood together to become a strong part of the INA. Protection for the nurses and the patients in their care are the standards these nurses fought for.

SIU - Southern Illinois University
In the Winter of 2017, RN's and LPN's at Southern Illinois University Student Health Services voted together overwhelmingly in favor of becoming a Union. They care for the students, and all they want is a little respect in return.
INA nurses at Union Health Services provide care for union members at this clinic located in Chicago's near west side medical center district, and at UHS satellite clinics.
