National Student Nurse Association (NSNA)

The National Student Nurse Association represents 50,000 nursing students across the United States. Your program costs include a fee that supports NSNA. To enroll, visit the National Student Nurse Association website. There you will find a wealth of information on insurance, textbooks, job opportunities and professional networking.

The MCC model for student involvement is that of shared governance: a system of rules and policies that serve to engage individuals to participate in decision making. The MCC-Penn Valley NSNA is interested in not only educational concerns, but also civic, social and political involvement in healthcare topics. (See the Penn Valley NSNA Constitution and By-Laws for further information).
