Los Altos Town Crier

The Professional Resource for Nurses (PRN), which represents El Camino Hospital’s 1,150 nurses, has concluded negotiations on its current contract, set to expire Sept. 30.

“We have a tentative agreement on noneconomic issues,” said Patricia Alshire Briggs, R.N., PRN’s president.

However, on the compensation and benefits issues, including cost-of-living adjustments, wage increases, health care, retirement, holidays and paid time off, Briggs said the hospital has given PRN its “last, best and final offer.”
