Last fall, WSNA member Justin Gill, MS, ARNP, NP‑C and WSNA Nurse Repre­sen­ta­tive Travis Elmore, BSN, RN-BC, were appointed by the American Nurses Associ­a­tion Board of Direc­tors to the ANA-PAC Board of Trustees.

In this role, Justin and Travis will work in partner­ship with state associ­a­tions to deter­mine which federal candi­dates for office the PAC will endorse and support.

Justin is an urgent care Nurse Practi­tioner with CHI Franciscan Health and serves on WSNA’s Legisla­tive and Health Policy Council. Travis was a staff nurse and Local Unit co-chair at Peace­Health South­west prior to joining WSNA as a Nurse Repre­sen­ta­tive five years ago.

The American Nurses Associ­a­tion Polit­ical Action Committee was estab­lished to promote the improve­ment of the health­care system in the United States by raising funds from ANA members and contributing to support worthy candi­dates for federal office who have demon­strated their belief in the legisla­tive and regula­tory agenda of the American Nurses Association.

Criteria to be consid­ered for the ANA-PAC Board of Trustees include demon­strated involve­ment in polit­ical work; experi­ence with lobbying at the local, state or national level; and a commit­ment to fundraising for the PAC.
