Nurses unite

The WSNA Cabinet on Economic and General Welfare invites you to join your fellow union nurses across Washington state for WSNA Nurses Unite! Connect. Create. Collab­o­rate. This new, free event will be held virtu­ally on Monday, Nov. 9, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Because COVID-19 has had a profound impact on how nurses live, advocate and care for their patients, the Cabinet created WSNA Nurses Unite! to provide more oppor­tu­ni­ties for nurses to:

  • Collab­o­rate and strate­gize with other WSNA union members throughout the state. 
  • Learn from state and national labor leaders about the future of the labor movement amid health, racial and economic crises.
  • Reener­gize after a challenging year.
