About Us

The California Nursing Students’ Association (CNSA) is a constituent of the National Student Nurses Association (NSNA). The organization is composed of over 4,500 members, who are committed to seeking educational, developmental, and professional growth within today’s various healthcare settings. 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

We are the CNSA West Coast University - Los Angeles Chapter. We help transition the student nurse to professional nurse through leadership development, education, mentorship, advocacy, activism, and stewardship. We invite you to join CNSA, and strengthen the voice of nursing students in California.
