On December 6, 2018, the Washington State Nurses Association (WSNA) reorganized the boundaries of its regional professional organizations. As a result, Pierce County Nurses Association (PCNA)’s boundaries expanded to cover Pierce, Thurston, Grays Harbor, Mason, Kitsap, Jefferson and Clallam counties. All WSNA members who live or work in these counties now have access to all PCNA programs, activities and events. 

For more than 100 years, PCNA has been an active, vibrant professional organization serving nurses in Pierce County. PCNA seeks to provide community engagement and professional development opportunities for members living across the Olympic Peninsula as well as in Pierce County. Join us in expanding our outreach!

We want to hear from you!

Please share your thoughts, suggestions and questions about the integration.
