The Student Nurses Association (SNA) at College of Western Idaho aims to bring together nursing students preparing for initial licensure as registered nurses. SNA promotes development of the skills students will need as responsible and accountable members of the nursing community. We advocate for high quality, evidence-based, affordable, and accessible healthcare and contribute to advances in nursing education. 

Our goal is to develop nursing students who are prepared to lead the profession in the future.
