Providence Home Services PNCC nurses have nearly concluded their work in creating a new Clinical Ladder for nurses. This project was a part of previous negotiations. Members of the group include Catherine Greenlee, Trish Bartholomew, Anna Seaver, Karen Lamica, Mary Dehning (Chair), Pamela Bacon and Helen Anderson.

Tuality Community Hospital PNCC, led by Cynthia Kistler, has been addressing issues related to direct care nurse presence on the hospital nurse staffing committee. They are recruiting staff nurses to join the committee and encouraging nurses to complete and file Staffing Request and Documentation Forms when staffing is difficult and/or unsafe.

Sacred Heart Medical Center PNCC, led by Brian Smith, has several projects: assessing the impact of a change from typical ward groupings to a "district model” where units are combined and realigned with one another. This has implications for patient care and nurse staffing. They continue to urge their health system to participate in Releasing Time to Care.

Providence St. Vincent Medical Center PNCC has added new members and is reorganizing itself for the coming year.
