Legislative affairs


Each year there are hundreds of proposed regulations and legislative bills introduced in Olympia with potential to greatly impact nurses, nursing, patient advocacy and your ability to deliver exceptional care. As an individual nurse, it’s nearly impossible to monitor and track all of the issues that affect your practice and livelihood.

As the largest association of registered nurses in the state, WSNA is there to ensure your interests are fully addressed. In fact, our legislative and regulatory staff of lobbyists, attorneys, labor, practice and health and safety specialists are dedicated to exclusively representing the interests of registered nurses.
