WSNA is pleased to announce our Fall Leader­ship Series, educa­tion events being held around the state that focus on how to put our legisla­tive victo­ries of 2019 into your practice.

You’ll learn what you can do as a nurse to ensure successful imple­men­ta­tion of new laws aimed at preventing workplace violence and protecting overtime and breaks for health­care professionals. 

All events are free and partic­i­pants earn 1.5 CNE credits for atten­dance. Dinner will be provided. See below for program details: 

  • Bring your questions and meet with a WSNA public affairs expert to hear about 2019 legis­la­tion that affects regis­tered nurse practice in Washington state.
  • Learn tactics to improve your personal safety on your facility campus and in your workplace. Predict and prepare for the unexpected using environ­mental scanning. Did you know that the Occupa­tional Safety and Health Admin­is­tra­tion reports that is far safer to worker in nuclear power, construc­tion and manufac­turing than in a U.S. hospital?
  • Most sessions also include a Nurses Speak session. The format has been likened to speed dating,” where elected officials move from table to table hearing from nurses about what your day is like at work. At the end of the session, elected officials share what they’ve learned about nursing and patient safety. For many legis­la­tors, these events have been quite insightful and have led to bill sponsor­ships and votes.
