Domestic Violence

As of June 2016, new legislation states that employers are now obligated to provide employees with 5 paid days annually to help deal with domestic violence. The days can be used all at once to help relocate or can be broken up, for example, to help with counselling sessions. These days are to be used at your discretion to assist in any way for those in this unfortunate situation. These situations can be very sensitive in nature. Please contact your union president to help with the navigation through the process to ensure these days can be utilized. Your union president can advocate on your behalf without having to have direct conversation with your NRC.

Addictions & Recovery

A nurse who previously struggled with addictions has recognized the importance of starting a support group solely for nurses who struggle with addiction. Aside from the addiction itself, comes the difficulty of navigating through issues with the colleges and the employer. Recovering Nurses United is a volunteer-run/ non-profit organization that MNU is now supporting to assist nurses with their journey towards recovery.

If you know of someone who is struggling or it is you, yourself, please contact recoveringnursesunited@gmail.com. No one can understand better what a nurses is going through than another nurse with the same struggles.
