Membership Makes a Difference
AUWS was officially formed in 1992 with the goal of promoting ARNP practice statewide. AUWS takes pride in representing over 4,300 specialty and primary care nurse practitioners in Washington State. Through the work of the legislative committee and Board of Director volunteers, in addition to paid lobbyists, we have successfully advocated for ARNP practice, thus promoting independence for our important profession.
Since 1997, AUWS has initiated legislation and lobbied the state legislature on multiple issues, striving to protect and expand scope of practice while improving and increasing access to quality health care for our patients. Membership revenues are vital for ongoing support of these and other efforts on behalf of Washington State ARNPs.
