WSNA is a member-driven organization

The Washington State Nurses Association (WSNA) is a dynamic, democratic organization through which professional nurses combine and utilize resources to achieve their goals.

Membership in WSNA allows you to be a part of an active, powerful force for change in your workplace. WSNA's local units and regional nurses associations provide leadership and professional development opportunities at the workplace and in your local community. Local unit membership gives dues-paying members represented by WSNA for collective bargaining the right to vote on contracts, be a member of the negotiating team, run for office and participate in WSNA's labor relations-related committees and councils.

All WSNA members in good standing, whether or not you are represented for collective bargaining by WSNA, have the right to run for and/or be appointed to the Board of Directors, the Legislative and Health Policy Council, the Professional Nursing and Health Care Council, additional councils and committees, and as a delegate to the ANA House of Delegates. Additionally, WSNA local unit members have the right to run for the Labor Executive Council, the LEC Nominations/Search Committee, and as a delegate to the AFT National Convention .
