The goal of WSNA’s 2020 Advocacy Camp is to educate nurses, nursing faculty, and nursing students about the legisla­tive process and about how to effec­tively advocate for nurses and patients when meeting with legislators.

Advocacy Camp 2020 will take place at the Red Lion Hotel in Tumwater, where partic­i­pants will be seated at round­ta­bles to foster a collab­o­ra­tive learning environ­ment. The agenda will feature speakers focused on legisla­tive advocacy, and Attorney General Bob Ferguson will give the keynote address. A panel of legis­la­tors and legisla­tive assis­tants will be invited to join us at lunch to give their thoughts on advocacy and the 2020 legisla­tive session.


This popular event attracts several hundred nurses and nursing students from across the state every year.

This event is for nursing schools, students and WSNA members.
