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.
The Annual Summer Leadership Conference normally takes place in New York City; however, it is being held virtually. Attendees gain a better understanding of NSNA’s mission and programs, how to run for office, start-a-chapter, and manage an association. NSNA student leaders and NSNA staff present timely topics. Participants take back ideas to their organizations to create stronger school and state chapters; and to problem solve and share ideas. Free registration for NSNA members, faculty advisors and state consultants.
NSNA MidYear Conference
The NSNA MidYear Career Planning Conference is held in the fall and offers a Mini NCLEX-RN Review, leadership and career development workshops on how to find internships, residencies and entry-level RN positions. Nursing Specialty Showcase offers insight into over 15 nursing practice areas. The Conference kicks off with a prominent keynote speaker and also includes a general session on a topic trending in healthcare. You will launch your career at MidYear!
