NSNA’s mission is to mentor students preparing for initial licensure as registered nurses, and to convey the standards, ethics, and skills that students will need as responsible and accountable leaders and members of the profession.
NSNA Annual Convention
The Annual Convention, held every spring, attracts thousands of nursing students, faculty, and nursing leaders from across the country. It features keynote and endnote speakers, exhibit hall, opening-night party, focus sessions, awards ceremony, Mini-NCLEX® Review, live auction, and many networking opportunities. School and state chapters are represented in the House of Delegates where resolutions are debated and leaders are elected. Faculty program includes a pre-convention workshop and several sessions earning contact hours.
