We're excited to invite our membership to join us IN-PERSON again in 2022 for WNA's Membership Assembly and Annual Meeting at the DoubleTree by Hilton - Madison East. If you are unable to attend for the entire day, we have arranged both in-person and VIRTUAL joining options for the afternoon Annual Meeting only.

Our day will have two parts:

Part I. In-person WNA Dialogue Forum - 8:15 am – 12:00 pm
The Dialogue Forum provides a formal process for members to respond to and improve a topic that has relevance to WNA members, the nursing profession and/or the public. There are two very relevant topics that will be discussed for those attending the meeting. The outcome from the Dialogue Forum is the development and presentation of recommendations for action by WNA for each topic. These recommendations will be presented to and voted on by the members attending the afternoon WNA Annual Meeting.  The topics for the 2022 Dialogue Forum are:

#1. Digital health literacy for the nursing workforce and consumers of health care

#2. Preparing nurses to respond to public health emergencies through a health disparities lens

The Dialogue Forum process will be as follows:
1. Overview of the topic
2. Interactive Panel presentation and discussion
3. Participant discussion
4. Identification of WNA’s role in addressing or advancing the important issue
5. Group develops recommendations for action by WNA
6. Present the recommendations for WNA action to the membership attending the WNA Annual Meeting.

Part II. In-person and virtual WNA Annual Meeting 12:15 – 1:15 pm

The purpose of the Annual Meeting is to provide the membership:
1. Relevant information
