Your voice is needed in Olympia - earn 2.75 CNE while advocating for your profession and your patients!

Nurses are the most trusted profession and make outstanding advocates. You showed that loud and clear last session – let’s build on that momentum at WSNA’s 2020 Lobby Day!

Here’s how Lobby Day works:

The morning session will be held at The Heritage Room – just down the street from the Capitol. You’ll hear the latest from WSNA staff and legislators on the 2020 session and WSNA’s priorities. You’ll receive talking points and training on meeting with legislators, and you will have time to practice what you will say when you meet with your representatives in their offices that afternoon.

On Lobby Day, after the morning session ends, you will join other nurses on the hill to meet with your legislators. Once you register, WSNA will make legislative appointments for you. You just need to show up!
