The nursing student association is a group that is linked to the state and national nursing student organizations. All students enrolled in the CSM Nursing Program are automatically members of this group. The student leaders are actively involved in organizing many activities, such as: fund raising, community service, an annual career fair, and planning the very special and memorable pinning ceremony for graduates of the program. Read on for more information!
NSA Roles and Responsibilities
Each nursing class elects a leadership team to represent them for a yearly term. Elections are held in the Fall semester for 1st year students and again in the Spring semester to elect the 2nd year leadership team. If you are interested in becoming an NSA officer please see the NSA Roles and Responsibilities document below for a description of all NSA positions or contact one of the present NSA officers for more detail.
Recommendations from the class of 2011
The class of 2011 recommends that you take the summer support courses for First and Second Year Students. These classes are highly valuable in preparing for your Fall Semester. Check the Schedule of Classes for courses and availability. Sign up early, as most of these courses start in July and fill up quickly.
