The nursing commission’s responsibilities include making and reviewing policies, writing advisory opinions and rules, reviewing investigations, participating in disciplinary hearings and charging panels, and providing technical assistance to students and licensees. It meets for one to two days, about six times a year. Members are paid $250 a day and are reimbursed for travel expenses.
The state Department of Health has opportunities to serve on other boards, commissions, and committees. Contact Lisa Hodgson at 360-236-2927.
