How to Get Involved with Wisconsin Nurses Association

Have you wanted to be more active in your career industry?  We have a few ways you can be involved!

Advocacy – Become an advocate for the causes that are important to the nursing industry in Wisconsin. As the only registered lobbyist for Wisconsin registered nurses, WNA works hard at the State Capitol (and on Capitol Hill in Washington) to make sure nursing’s best interests are always represented. We are always looking for volunteers to join our Public Policy Council. A small action with potentially significant results is when we send out notifications through email and Voter Voice is to contact your legislators.  They work for you and need to hear from you on nursing issues.

Donate – WNA needs your support to help achieve its legislative priorities – priorities that affect you, your practice, and your patients. Please contribute today so we can advance nursing now and influence tomorrow!  You can donate today by clicking here.

You may also wish to donate on behalf of the departed nurse to the Nurses Foundation of Wisconsin. The foundation uses the donations to support nursing education and research and enhance nursing’s impact on health care. You can donate to the Nightingale Tribute here: Donate to NFW

Leadership – All members of the Wisconsin Nurses Association can be involved in leadership roles.  We have numerous councils, mutual interest groups and several boards that any member can sit on.  This is a great addition to your resume in addition to providing you an opportunity to network! Watch your emails and our social media to learn when these positions open.

Connect and share your expertise – Join us on Wisconsin Nurses Connect. Wisconsin Nurses Connect is a member only platform on which our WNA members can share thoughts and resources, ask questions, and receive information direct from WNA. This platform is an alternative to Facebook or LinkedIn groups and allows us the opportunity to delve deeper into providing our members the opportunity to network and have discussions that are important to our members.

If there is a specific leadership role you would like more information about or if you are a member who would like an invitation to Wisconsin Nurses Connect, please contact our Membership Coordinator, Bri Dunbar, by email.
