Year after year, Gallup public opinion polls show nursing to be the most respected profession, and nurses play a crucial role in shaping and delivering health care. Their public credibility gives them a strong influence in the communities they serve and puts them in positions of key responsibility in setting health care policy and in strategic planning.
The Washington State Nurses Convention draws hundreds of nurses together from across the state and beyond for three days of continuing education, keynote speakers, networking, and sharing knowledge and best practices.
The Washington State Nurses Association (WSNA) is the leading voice and advocate for nurses in Washington, providing representation and training that allow nurses to reach our full professional potential and focus on caring for patients. For more than 110 years, WSNA has championed issues that support nurses, advance professional standards and improve the health of individuals and families in Washington.
WSNA represents more than 17,000 registered nurses who provide care in hospitals, clinics, schools, and community and public health settings across Washington.
By giving nurses a voice and enhancing skills, WSNA members can focus on delivering quality care that improves the health of individuals and families in Washington.
