The presentation will show nurses how to guide their patients towards better sleep, giving them the knowledge and tools to use sleep as a powerful agent for healing and maintenance for long-term conditions. Nurses will learn about the importance of sleep and how it relates to all chronic conditions (pain, discomfort, inflammation, fatigue, etc.) as well as insights into specific conditions. You’ll hear real-life examples of how sleep intertwines with symptoms and impacts health and quality of life.

Name Change Finalized

In October 2021, we received notification that our name change was processed by the IRS. This was the final step in officially changing our name.

On September 12, 2020 at a Special Membership Meeting, the bylaws measure to change the name of the association from Pierce County Nurses Association to Rainier Olympic Nurses Association passed with over 2/3 of the members present voting in favor of the name change. Later that month, we received confirmation from the WA State Secretary of State office that our name change is official. Since then, we’ve moved ahead with rebranding as Rainier Olympic Nurses Association.

Rainier Olympic Nurses Association reflects our expanded region that now spans Pierce, Grays Harbor, Thurston, Mason, Kitsap, Jefferson & Callam counties.

Integration Background

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 110 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.

In 2020, our membership voted to change our name to Rainier Olympic Nurses Association to more accurately reflect our expanded area and membership.

We want to hear from you! Please share your thoughts, suggestions, and questions about the integration. Email us at office@rainierolympicnurses.org
