Step up. Speak out. Lead.

Practice your new skills while networking with lawmakers at WSNA’s annual Legislative Reception.

Refreshments and heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served. Receive complimentary admission to Nurse Legislative Day ($60 value) by attending Advocacy Camp. This event is capped at 150 participants, so register early.
