I agree with you Hannah. I think that unionization and therefore, collective bargaining definitely benefits nursing and more importantly the patients. One advantage that as a nurse I find beneficial is the fact that nurses who are apart of a union tend to have higher wages (Sojourner, Frandsen, Town, Grabowski, & Chen, 2015). This attracts more nurses and helps with the nursing shortage in organizations who have unionized nursing contracts. Not to mention they tend to stay at the organization longer. Some organizations offer one-time nursing bonuses in exchange for two years of employment. I can see that this helps for a short-term solution to nursing shortages, but if the nurses are unionized at a particular organization it has long term effects
