Hall of Fame

Recognizing those who have made significant lifetime achievements

Celebrating our heroes, mentors, and friends

The Washington State Nurses Hall of Fame recognizes trailblazing nurses at the pinnacle of excellence — those who have transformed the practice, research, educational opportunities, and governing policies of nursing in our state. Their legacies uplift us all.

Since 1996, the Hall of Fame has recognized the dedication and achievement of Washington RNs who have changed the practice, research, educational opportunities, and governing policies of nursing in our state. We would not be where we are as a profession without these inspiring pioneers, innovators, mentors, and friends.
