The WSNA-PAC campaign

As impor­tant as it is to be involved in your local commu­nity by supporting local candi­dates, it’s equally as impor­tant that we are all involved on the state level as well.

By partic­i­pating in WSNA-PAC, your voice is heard collec­tively with hundreds of nurses across the State who have a seat at the table of impor­tant public policy debates. If you don’t get involved, you might face the prospect of bad legis­la­tion or a new set of crippling regula­tions. To maintain our presence and repre­sent our profes­sion, we must raise about $5,000 this year!

What we need now is your support. Please join WSNA-PAC today!

Make a contribution!

If every member of WSNA were to contribute just $1 a month ($12 a year), WSNA-PAC would be over $150,000 strong to ensure that we are visible in Olympia.
