Membership in a professional
association is a seal of approval in many
fields. Paying the dues and becoming involved demonstrates an
extra level of dedication and investment into your profession.
The California Nursing Student Association, which is a
of the National Student Nurse's Association, is the "professional
association" for you as a nursing student in California.

has setup this brief web presence in the hopes to:
While past officers have maintained more elaborate websites it has been
decided that in the
interest of consistency Facebook become the homepage and main source of
information for the organization. Facebook provides a more
interactive means of communication and bypasses the University's
difficult process for managing websites on their server.
attempt will be made to maintain this website as a way to briefly
inform interest individuals and redirect them to the Facebook page.
- Provide a hub for new and
current members to learn a little more
about the organization.
- Allow members to identify
(and contact) current CSU CNSA officers.
- Link members to the CSU,
CNSA Facebook page and School of Nursing
