Belong to MNA


Being an active member of your union is one of the most effective ways to improve your practice and protect your patients. Support for a strong nursing contract starts with union membership. If your workplace is organized as part of the Michigan Nurses Association, this is the application that you need.

Associate membership (described below) is for health care providers who are not eligible to fully participate in collective bargaining because they do not work at a represented workplace.
