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.
