CNSA loading


The Canadian Nursing Students’ Association (CNSA) is the national voice of Canadian nursing students.  Our goal is to increase the legal, ethical, professional, and educational aspects which are an integral part of nursing. CNSA is actively dedicated to the positive promotion of nurses and the nursing profession as a whole.


For over 40 years, CNSA has represented the interests of nursing students to federal, provincial, and international governments and to other nursing and health care organizations.


As a member of CNSA, you have the opportunity to interact with other nursing students on educational, professional, and social levels. CNSA members connect with each other through annual national and regional conferences, CNSA member forums, Facebook, and Twitter.


The CNSA, with nearly 30,000 members, is an affiliate member of the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA), as well as an associate member of the Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions (CFNU). The CNSA also has a reciprocal relationship with Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN).  For the 2018-2019 year, our major stakeholder is the Canadian Indigenous Nurses Association (CINA).
