WSNA is a member-driven organization. #

The Washington State Nurses Associ­a­tion (WSNA) is a dynamic, democ­ratic organi­za­tion through which profes­sional nurses combine and utilize resources to achieve their goals.

Member­ship in WSNA allows you to be a part of an active, powerful force for change in your workplace. WSNA local units and the District Nurses Associ­a­tions provide leader­ship and profes­sional devel­op­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties at the workplace and in your local commu­nity. And your local unit member­ship gives you the right to vote on contracts, be a member of the negoti­ating team, run for office and partic­i­pate in WSNA Commit­tees and Councils. 

All WSNA members in good standing, whether or not you are repre­sented for collec­tive bargaining by WSNA, have the right to run for and/​or be appointed to the WSNA Board of Direc­tors, WSNA Councils and Commit­tees and as a WSNA delegate to the ANA House of Delegates. Addition­ally, all WSNA local unit members have the right to run for the WSNA Cabinet on Economic and General Welfare (CE&GW) and the CE&GW Nominations/​Search Committee.
