Professional Nursing and Health Care Council


The Professional Nursing and Health Care Council is responsible for addressing issues of nursing practice that have been identified by members of the nursing profession and the public. Primary focus is given to the adherence to ethical, professional and legal standards of nursing practice. The Council collaborates with other nursing and specialty organizations on issues on nursing and other health care concerns. The Council meets at least three times a year and reports to the WSNA Board of Directors.
