Wisconsin Nurses Association

The Wisconsin Nurses Association (WNA) is the one professional nursing association representing all Registered Nurses (RN) in the state of Wisconsin. WNA is also a constituent member association of the American Nurses Association (ANA).

The organization has been advocating on behalf of patients, nurses, and the nursing profession in Wisconsin for over a century. Working with the ANA, the organization works to insure high nursing standards in the state, to develop and continually educate Wisconsin’s nurses, to look out for the welfare of all nurses, and to improve health care for all patients.

The WNA’s mission is stated as:

“Nurses caring for nurses and nursing, by preserving, supporting and advancing the profession of nursing.”

Joining Wisconsin’s Largest RN Association

There are many benefits to being a member of the state’s largest RN association. Participation on committees or as an elected official within the organization can help nurses to hone their leadership skills. Meetings and committee work provide nurses with opportunities to network with nurses from a variety of practice settings and areas of specialty.

Membership in the WNA has other benefits like legislative representation on the local and state levels. WNA is the only registered lobbyist for RNs in Wisconsin. WNA members get free subscriptions to their STAT Bulletin and WNA Weekly Monitor publications. They also get access to a large number of resources through the members only section of the site and their WNA Pulse online community.

Those members choosing to join the ANA in addition to WNA have access to all of the benefits of being an ANA member.
