Why should I join SNA?

Students who become members have membership in both the school (CSUSM chapter), state (CNSA), and national organizations (NSNA). As such, there are specific benefits to SNA members.  These include:

  • Get discounts at various companies, including hotels, NCLEX prep materials, scrubs, health insurance, and more.

  • Scholarship opportunities.

  • Have the opportunity to attend national and state conventions.

  • SNA membership looks good on your resume and shows that you are involved in both school and the community.

  • You can earn an SNA cord to wear at graduation.

  • SNA members also get to run for SNA Board of Directors positions, and this experience allows you to serve your nursing school community and practice leadership skills within a recognized and respected organization.
