The conflicting red, white and blue signs that claim to speak for Massachusetts nurses are everywhere: “Nurses say NO on 1” and “Nurses say YES on 1.”

A WBUR poll of 500 registered nurses shows 48 percent plan to vote for the ballot question that would establish nurse-to-patient ratios in state law, and 45 percent say they’ll vote against the measure. Seven percent are undecided.
