As a member of WSNA, you are also a member of a regional or district nurses association. These professional organizations are supported by a portion of your membership dues and are intended to provide educational opportunities, scholarships and networking on a local level.
Note that regional and district nurses associations are unrelated to Local Units and are not involved in collective bargaining (union) activities.
