Watsonville nurses plan to return to work early Friday morning after three days of rallies and picketing. More than 100 nurses and their supporters gathered at noon Thursday near the entrance of Watsonville Community Hospital for a boisterous protest against lagging contract negotiations and a lockout. Across Neilsen Street, the hospital grounds were ringed with orange construction fencing and security guards posted at the entrance questioned people entering the parking lot.
