Youngstown General Duty Nurses Association:  A Legacy of Dignity, Strength, and Caring, 1966 – 2018

Thursday, October 21, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Nurses Exhibit

The Youngstown Historical Center of Industry and Labor would like to announce the upcoming exhibit Youngstown General Duty Nurses Association:  A Legacy of Dignity, Strength, and Caring, 1966 – 2018.  The exhibit opens to the public on Thursday, October 21, 2021 from 6pm – 8pm, RSVP preferred. Contact 330.941.1314 or email [email protected].

The exhibit chronicles the history of the YGDNA, the first nurses’ union in Ohio and the second in the country from its inception over a wage dispute in 1966 to the hospital’s closing just three years ago.  The nurses’ union served as a voice for the registered nurses at the Youngstown Hospital Association, eventually extending to Northside, Southside and Tod Babies and Children’s Hospital and Beeghly Medical Park.  The union worked to improve conditions affecting the quality of patient care as well as welfare issues of wages, benefits, and the work environment.  It protected them and their ability to advocate for their patients and devote themselves to the highest ethics and standards possible.  The museum faculty and staff wish to thank YGDNA members for their generous support of this exhibit through donations and sponsorship of an archival intern for the collection.

The museum is supported by the Ohio History Connection and managed by the History Program at Youngstown State University.  For additional information please call 330.941.1314 or visit our website at www.youngstownohiosteelmuseum.edu.  A supplementary digital component of the exhibit can be found on our website on October 21.  Museum hours:  Wednesday through Friday from ten to four and Saturdays from noon to four.  Face masks are required at this time.
