Advocacy

Protecting and Advancing your Practice

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 monitor State Board of Nursing meetings, help elect candidates that support nursing through our political action committees WINPAC and ANA-PAC, and provide legal counsel to nurses who need our help.
