Your team is here for you! #

Your WSNA team and Nurse Repre­sen­ta­tive are in commu­ni­ca­tion REGULARLY with HR and leader­ship because your safety is our primary concern. Please note, the NATIONAL DISASTER decla­ra­tion gives the employer the flexible ability to make decisions. We are doing our best to address the concerns rapidly coming in and responding promptly. We need to keep each other informed and safe so we can continue to care for the people who desper­ately need us.

If you experi­ence COVID-19 trouble in your work environ­ment, you feel you have been exposed, or you are sent home on quaran­tine, we also want to hear from you. We are working to track all instances. Please email all issues and inquiries to Nurse Repre­sen­ta­tive Jaclyn Perkins BSN, RN at jperkins@wsna.org.

We are working daily to answer your questions and respond as promptly as we can. We have compiled a list of common inquiries into one simple location.

Building Up WSNA “Local Unit Liaisons #

Please consider volun­teering to be a commu­ni­ca­tion liaison between the WSNA Nurse Rep, the Officers and your co-workers. This will help us dispense the infor­ma­tion quickly, and keep nurses informed. Local Unit Liaisons are the eyes and ears for the WSNA and work to help the WSNA Nurse Rep and the Local Unit Officers connect with the staff nurses and bridge commu­ni­ca­tion. If you want to partic­i­pate as a Local Unit Liaison, please email Nurse Repre­sen­ta­tive Jaclyn Perkins, BSN, RN, today!
