About the Hall of Fame

In 1996, the Washington State Nurses Association unveiled its Hall of Fame, recognizing the dedication and achievements of Washington state registered nurses who have made significant lifetime accomplishments in the nursing profession.

Each inductee into the Washington State Nurses Association Hall of Fame has demonstrated excellence in the areas of patient care, leadership, education, public service, nurse advocacy, heroism, patient advocacy, or clinical practice, and for achievements that have value to nursing beyond the inductee's lifetime. In addition, each has demonstrated excellence that affected the health and/or social history of Washington state through sustained, lifelong contributions.
