Dozens of North County nurses joined a nationwide protest on Wednesday to call for more personal protective equipment and raise awareness on other coronavirus pandemic-related issues.

Hundreds of protests across the country took place Wednesday and locally, a demonstration was held outside Palomar Medical Center as part of the movement. The National Nurses United (NNU) union organized the effort to protect medical workers who are on the front lines in the battle against the virus.

"The ultimate job of a nurse is to protect the patient, and we can't do that if we're not well," said Joan Marie Reker, a member of the California Nurses Association.
