WANA Events


I’m not sure if you have been following the news, but The Marcus Whitman Hotel (our venue for this year’s annual WANA conference) has been shut down indefinitely due to safety concerns from a gas leak yet to be located. It is now affecting 4 blocks with engineers brought in for drilling and further digging to find the source for containment. 


Due to the timeline of our conference, the in-person conference will now be pivoted to a virtual conference. For those who have already registered, you will be contacted to discuss what options will be available to you. 


For those who have not yet registered, information about our virtual option will be revised and sent out for others to have the opportunity to attend who were not able to make it to the in-person meeting. 


We are diligently working on a solution as we transition this to a virtual environment. More information and details will be available and shared very soon. 


This will be a synchronous virtual offering and not one that will be taped for later viewing.


Thank you for your patience as we work out the final details of pivoting this event to ensure that we are still offering educational opportunities to our members.

WANA Educational Conferences

The Washington Association of Nurse Anesthetists (WANA) has sponsored educational conferences for the past 40 years in an effort to provide the people of Washington State the highest quality anesthesia care available.

These educational conferences offer a multitude of opportunities to introduce new technology, pharmaceuticals, and patient care improvement systems.

With the realization that these conferences are the venue to introduce new and current products to providers who make the decisions to obtain technology for their institutions, the value of vendor participation is self-evident.

We offer a three-tiered partnership opportunity for all vendors interested in supporting Washington Association of Nurse Anesthetists. Within this partnership agreement, we offer the vendor additional ways to communicate with our members beyond exhibiting at the educational conferences.

If you have any questions, please contact WANA Executive Director Melissa Schwab at wana1@comcast.net.
