Thousands of nurses at more than 60 Kaiser Permanente facilities throughout Northern and Central California approved a new three-year pact with the health-care giant, the California Nurses Association announced Thursday.

The new contract gives 17,000 registered nurses and nurse practitioners a 5 percent boost in wages for each year, retains benefits and provides new protocols for resolving disputes over staffing levels.
