May S Loomis

One of the original signers of the WSNA Articles of Incor­po­ra­tion and the first Presi­dent of WSNA. She was instru­mental in securing the first Nurse Practice Act in 1909. Her nursing career spanned thirty-five years. She was the first Presi­dent of the North­west Section of the American Nurses Associ­a­tion. The May Loomis schol­ar­ship fund was estab­lished in her honor following her untimely death in 1934. The WSNF has continued support for this schol­ar­ship fund that still bears her name.
