General Election Endorsements

The Pennsylvania State Nurses Association – Political Action Committee (PSNA-PAC), representing more than 221,000 nurses in the Commonwealth, has announced their bi-partisan endorsements for the upcoming general election.

“These candidates have proven their commitment to the inclusion of nurses at leadership and decision making tables,” stated PSNA Chief Executive Officer Betsy M. Snook, MEd, BSN, RN. “Today’s healthcare environment needs transformational leaders. This bi-partisan group of PSNA-endorsed legislators and candidates will be invaluable in advancing health policy in Harrisburg.”

The PSNA Board of Directors appoints registered nurse PSNA members to sit on the PSNA-PAC. When reviewing incumbents, the Committee reviews voting records, co-sponsorships, and relationships with the association. The Committee reviews an official PSNA-PAC questionnaire for any challenger or candidate for State House and Senate. PSNA-PAC does not endorse in national, statewide, or congressional races. PSNA-PAC only considers State Senate and State House of Representative races.
