The Washington State Legislature’s 2021 Regular Session is just around the corner, begin­ning Monday, Jan. 11. Because of the pandemic, the legis­la­ture is expected to meet remotely — and so will we. 

Join us virtu­ally for WSNA’s 2021 Advocacy Camp on Monday, Jan. 25, from 8:15 to 11:30 a.m.

Nurses are on the front­lines of the pandemic response, and much of this legisla­tive session will focus on how to keep essen­tial workers safe. State revenues are down, due to the economic reces­sion caused by the pandemic; that means budget gains for nursing school faculty in our state’s commu­nity and technical colleges will be at risk. 

WSNA will continue to advocate for public health funding and invest­ment in school nurses.

Your strong nurse voices will continue to make an impact in Olympia. By attending Advocacy Camp, you will learn how to build relation­ships with your elected officials. Your voice is more essen­tial than ever.

This event is open to nursing schools, students and WSNA members.
