CNSA is composed of over 5,000 members who are committed in seeking optimal educational, developmental, and professional growth within today's various healthcare settings.

Membership in CNSA is automatic when you join NSNA. Your membership strengthens the voice of nursing students on the state and national level.

The Benefits of Membership
