The purpose of the California Student’s Nursing Association is to promote the nursing profession through intellectual enrichment, personal growth, and individual performance of its members. In addition, we hope that our members participate in activities to learn shared-governance leadership skills, become a part in advocating for quality healthcare, and contribute to advances in nursing education and be prepared to be leaders in our profession.
