2022 Washington State Nurses Hall of Fame gala

On Thursday, March 17, 2022, WSNA honored the dedication and achievement of six Washington RNs who have changed the practice, research, educational opportunities and governing policies of nursing in our state.

This story was published in the Spring-Summer 2022 issue of The Washington Nurse.

Every two years, WSNA welcomes a new class of inductees into the Washington State Nurses Hall of Fame. This year, we held an in-person gala dinner at the Hotel Interurban in Tukwila on March 13. It was wonderful to be in person after our 2020 induction ceremony was held online due to the coronavirus pandemic.

We are pleased to introduce the 2022 class of inductees, which brings our Hall of Fame to 83 inductees since it began in 1996:

WSNA created the Hall of Fame to recognize the dedication, achievements and vision of Washington state registered nurses who have made significant lifetime contributions to the profession of nursing. Each inductee has demonstrated excellence in the areas of patient care, leadership, education, public service, nurse advocacy, heroism, patient advocacy or clinical practice. Their contributions have value to our profession beyond the inductee’s lifetime, and their demonstrated excellence has made a difference in the health and social history of Washington state. Congratulations to all the 2022 Hall of Fame inductees!
