WNA Reference Committee advances Reference Report for WNA Annual Meeting – allows for greater member engagement in the development process

Recommendations for changing the process for submitting Reference Reports to the WNA members for adoption are being proposed at the 2016 WNA Annual Meeting. The process is an adaptation of the newly adopted process used at the ANA Membership Assembly. The goal of the new process is to bring members together during the Membership Assembly meeting to identify an issue of importance to nursing and spend time sharing ideas and discussing priorities through “real time” interaction and engagement. Please review the 2016 Reference Report submitted by the WNA Reference Committee below. Members will have the opportunity to discuss the proposed changes during the Reference Committee Virtual Hearing in early October and on Friday, October 21, 2016, from 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm at the Marriot West Hotel in Middleton.
