California Nursing Students' Association (CNSA)

California Nursing Students' Association

Are you looking for a community that will nurture and challenge you in your nursing career? Do you want to be part of something bigger than yourself — actively making a difference in the trajectory of nursing statewide and in service of the city in which you live? If so, consider joining the California Nursing Students' Association (CNSA).

What is CNSA?

CNSA is a statewide community of over 5,500 members committed to assisting nursing students in their transition from student to professional through leadership development, education, mentorship, advocacy, activism, and stewardship. These values are upheld and promoted by PLNU's own CNSA chapter.

Why should I join CNSA?

CNSA provides a community of support academically, emotionally, physically, and spiritually, while promoting excellence and professionalism at PLNU and in the community. Some of those community projects have included holiday food drives and toy collection, and 5k runs to promote awareness and raise fund  for various healthcare organizations.

CNSA also provides valuable advantages to nursing students, including educational resources, mentorships job openings, and even scholarship and loan forgiveness opportunities.
