Why Should I Get Involved?

The Washington State Nurses Association’s current public policy priorities include ensuring full-scope of nursing practice and addressing the nursing shortage in our state.

The question is: Are you concerned about the following issues?

  • Safe nurse staffing standards
  • Scope of practice
  • Prohibition of mandatory overtime
  • Safe patient handling – no manual lifting
  • Malpractice reform
  • Reimbursement
  • Nursing education funding
  • Public health funding
  • Continuing education
  • Funding for uninsured
  • Monetary/scholarship support for nursing education, certification and training
  • Licensure issues
  • Nurse retention/shortage
  • Health care access
  • Safe work environment

If so, you should know WSNA PAC is the only fund set up that aggressively pursues the election and re-election of candidates for state office who will stand up and support the nursing profession on key issues like these, as well as a long list of other issues critical to our future!

The WSNA PAC Campaign

As important as it is to be involved in your local community by supporting local candidates, it’s equally as important that we are all involved on the state level as well.

By participating in WSNA PAC, your voice is heard collectively with hundreds of nurses across the State who have a seat at the table of important public policy debates. If you don’t get involved, you might face the prospect of bad legislation or a new set of crippling regulations. To maintain our presence and represent our profession, we must raise about $5,000 this year!

What we need now is your support. Please join WSNA PAC today!

Make a contribution to WSNA-PAC!

If every member of WSNA were to contribute just $1 a month ($12 a year), WSNA-PAC would be over $125,000 strong to ensure that we are visible in Olympia.
