Central Texas College

Student Nurse Association

The Central Texas College Student Nurses Association (SNA) is part of the National Student Nurse Association (NSNA), http://www.nsna.org/, the largest independent student organization in the country and the only national organization for students of nursing. The Texas Nurses Student Association web site is: http://www.tnsa.org/ .

For a membership fee, a student can participate in this organization dedicated to giving student nurses the opportunity to contribute to their nursing education now and assisting them to prepare for future leadership roles. The members become familiar with current professional activities, educational changes and needs and community health care needs. More importantly, is the emphasis by the association on direct involvement in these activities from the early planning stages through implementation of programs. The student members are also encouraged by the association to participate in interdisciplinary activities and to continue working with other professional nursing organizations. The CTC SNA posts scheduled monthly meetings. The SNA coordinates, implements and participates in college and community professional and charitable activities that promote positive social change. There are scholarship opportunities for members.

For more information, please see our Department of Nursing website, our Facebook page and our monthly Vital Signs Newsletter.
