The District of Columbia Nurses Association (DCNA) is the professional organization for registered nurses who live and/or work in the District. DCNA is affiliated with National Nurses United, American Federation of Labor - Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) and the Washington Metropolitan Council.

DCNA negotiates contracts that make sure nurses’ pay is competitive and commensurate with experience, years of service, responsibility, autonomy, and education. DCNA contracts provide guaranteed benefits, equitable policies, fair representation, job security, and practical solutions to everyday workplace problems affecting the professional lives of nurses.

DCNA encourages its members to get involved in leadership roles at the local and national level. Within the DCNA framework, nurses gain experience as volunteer lobbyists, media spokespersons, union advocates, and community activists.

George Washington University Hospital RN - Security and Workplace Violence

We, the concerned nurses and hospital staff of George Washington University Hospital (GWUH) and members of the community, in partnership with DCNA, urgently request a meeting with Ms. Kim Russo, the CEO of GWUH. We seek this meeting to discuss the alarming rise in security and workplace violence issues that we have been encountering while diligently serving our patients within the hospital premises, specifically the recent incident where a person in police custody escaped from the Emergency Department.
