Platt College Student Nurses Association

The School of Nursing at Platt College offers students a unique opportunity to become a member of the School of Nursing at Platt College Student Nurses Association (PSNA).  Platt College’s SNA is a chapter of the National Student Nurses Association (NSNA), as well as the Colorado Student Nurses Association.

NSNA and CSNA are pre-professional organizations operated by and for nursing students. NSNA offers students educational programs, discounts on products (NSNA Journal, Imprint), professional services (e.g., liability insurance), and leadership opportunities. Membership fees are very reasonable. PSNA is an excellent vehicle for involvement in your chosen profession.

The PSNA is involved in a number of philanthropy and volunteer projects in the Denver metropolitan area. PSNA has previously participated in book drives for a battered women's shelter, Habitat for Humanity projects, 9 News Health Fair, and many other projects.

PSNA members are eligible to attend numerous national conventions across the United States, as well as the convention held in Colorado. Membership in PSNA is a great way to get involved in the School of Nursing and gain leadership skills that are valuable to every nurse.
