The National Student Nurses’ Association (NSNA)
The National Student Nurses’ Association (NSNA) is a nonprofit organization for students enrolled in associate, baccalaureate, diploma, and pre-licensure graduate nursing programs. NSNA is dedicated to fostering the professional development of nursing students. Pre-nursing and RN to BSN students are also eligible for membership. NSNA’s mission is to mentor students preparing for initial licensure as registered nurses, and to covey the standards, ethics, and skills that students will need as responsible and accountable leaders and members of the profession.
Members of the NSNA make up the School Constituents and State Constituents. Through school constituents and state constituents, the members have representation in the House of Delegates, the major decision-making body of NSNA, which meets each year during the Annual Convention. The House sets direction for the association, and elects the members of the Board of Directors and Nominating and Elections Committee.
The Hawaii Student Nurses’ Association (HISNA)
Founded in 2013, the Hawaii Student Nurses’ Association is the state constituent of the National Student Nurses Association (NSNA), comprised of seven schools across the State of Hawaii. HISNA is dedicated to the personal and professional development of students at the School, Community, and State level.
