On March 17, WSNA will add a new class of leaders to the Washington State Nurses Hall of Fame — our highest honor. Since 1996, the Hall of Fame has recog­nized the dedica­tion and achieve­ment of Washington RNs who have changed the practice, research, educa­tional oppor­tu­ni­ties and governing policies of nursing in our state.

Every two years, nurses across Washington state nominate colleagues who have significantly impacted the lives of others and the nursing profession. This year, you chose to honor six registered nurses who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of patient care, leadership, education, public service, advocacy and clinical practice.
