Nursing Student Association

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.

NSA Constitution & Student Advisory Committee


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.
