Step up. Speak out. Influence.

Join hundreds of nurses and students from all across Washington state at your annual lobby day in Olympia. The governor will be our keynote speaker again this year, and we look forward to honoring a bipartisan group of legislators as 2017 Nursing Champions. Morning sessions are followed by lunch (provided) and afternoon meetings with legislators on the hill. Help influence the state of nursing, health care, and patient safety!

This event is $60 for pre-registered WSNA members or free for Advocacy Camp participants
