My name is Niamh, 10 points to anyone who can pronounce it correctly! I started my nursing career in step down, and made my way to where I am currently in MICU. Starting as a new grad in 2020 in the throws of Covid was interesting to say the least, and allowed me the privilege of working with experienced nurses who could offer me perspective on nursing pre and post Covid. I learned about problems in the nursing field that existed before, but were exacerbated by Covid. With new issues about the mistreatment of nurses coming to light, I decided that it is an honor and duty for me to fight for justice and fairness for nurses. I am so thankful to be a part of NYPNU and to have such a wonderful union to guide me towards being an advocate for workers' rights!
