Historical Note

This professional association of registered nurses was established in 1903 as the King County Graduate Nurses Association. It is linked closely on the state and national levels with the Washington State Nurses Association and the American Nurses Association. In 1951, the name was changed to the King County Nurses Association. The Association maintains a registry of its members and makes referrals to hospitals in need of nursing staff. It has also been active in lobbying activities. In the 1950s and possibly the 1960s, Julia O. Crose was director. Margaret Scharnickel was director in the 1970s.
