Nursing Diversity Development Leadership Education Is Our Passion

WCN Statement on Racial Equity

To WCN, racial equity means we have an unrelenting commitment to dismantling racism by becoming an anti-racist organization. We do this by collaborating with communities of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color; nursing leaders, nursing students, educators, nursing unions, and consumers. Together we will transform the nursing workforce to one that reflects the communities we serve and create an equitable health system for Washingtonians to thrive.
