Children’s Minnesota nurse staffing update 

Our number one priority at Children’s Minnesota is to provide safe, high-quality care for our patients and families. As you may have heard recently, Children’s Minnesota is negotiating a new contract with the Minnesota Nurses Association (MNA). The MNA organized a strike from Sept. 12 until Sept. 15, 2022, at 7 a.m. During that time, Children’s Minnesota services continued with qualified, licensed staff. 

After the end of the strike at 7 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 15, Children’s Minnesota will transition back to normal operations. Families can rest assured that Children’s Minnesota is fully prepared to continue to offer high-quality care to every child who needs us. We assure you that patient safety and quality care will never be compromised.  

After the strike, Children’s Minnesota will continue negotiations until an agreement is reached. You can read more about the bargain here.
