Slashed services, historic raises and a nurse calling 911: What’s happening in Washington?

The Washington State Nurses Association, for its part, opposes the Compact for being a "flawed, rigid, one-size-fits-all approach to nursing licensure," David Keepnews, PhD, BSN, the association's executive director, said in a statement shared with Becker's. "We don't believe that joining the Compact would ease the staffing crisis in Washington. Many Compact states continue to face staffing problems. Washington already processes licensure applications from out-of-state nurses within a matter of days."
