Registered nurses at Renown Medical Center, are changing unions.
The center announced Thursday night, that RNs will now be represented by the Nevada Nurse Union, through the SEIU.
Many RNs say negotiating a union contract will help set nursing standards, and patients will ultimately receive the quality care they need.
In response Renown Spokesman Don Butterfield says, "All along, we have supported the right of nurses at Renown Regional Medical Center to vote independently and privately on the matter of union representation through a process protected and supervised by the National Labor Relations Board."
Some Renown nurses say, they will work with other members of SEIU, to try and form a union with nurses at Saint Mary's
