The Alabama Association of Nursing Students (AANS) is a constituent of the National Student Nurses Association (NSNA). NSNA is a non-profit organization for students enrolled in pre-nursing, associate, baccalaureate, diploma, and generic graduate nursing programs. The organization has more than 60,0000 members. NSNA and AANS are dedicated to fostering the professional development of nursing students.

The mission of the Alabama Association of Nursing Students is to foster nursing education, facilitate unity among our future colleagues, and to optimize the nursing student’s exposure to the numerous specialties and pathways in the ever-changing field of nursing.

Becoming a NSNA member today will connect you with a community that understands and can connect with you on the same level. It is hard for family and friends to understand the struggle of being a nursing student. We offer conventions on the state and national level as a way to connect with other nursing students and vendors with ample opportunities.

There are other benefits to joining today as well. NSNA members are offered discounts on many amenities like books, study materials, apparel, NCLEX reviews, and most importantly they offer Health and Liability insurance. Joining today will connect you with all the endless possibilities that NSNA and AANS provides.
