It came to the atten­tion of your WSNA local unit officers, WSNA nurse repre­sen­ta­tive and OHMC manage­ment that a modifi­ca­tion was needed regarding the nurse residency agree­ment. For 12-hour residents, the only option was to work 0.9 FTE. For 8‑hour nurses, the minimum FTE was 0.8. To make this equitable, the residency agree­ment was modified by a mutually agreed side letter. Going forward from July 1, 2018, the minimum require­ment for 12-hour nurse residents will be to work a minimum of 0.75 FTE. 

To view this side letter, please go to the Contracts & Documents tab.

If you have any questions, please contact WSNA Nurse Repre­sen­ta­tive Hanna Welander at (206) 575‑7979, ext. 3035 or
