There were also educational sessions. Topics such as leadership, legislative activism, and occupational health nursing were offered. Chapter Development workshops gave each school chapter an opportunity to share ideas on successful strategies for chapter development. Speakers introduced information about different nursing specialties such as forensic nursing.

chooseNursing.com shares RN ambassador presentation tools with students.

The students were very interested in chooseNursing.com’s outreach presentation tools. They saw them as a way to help with their Break-Through to Nursing requirements. Many students were aware of chooseNursing.com’s scholarships and were very excited to hear of our plans to continue the scholarship program. CNSA Board member Brent Peterson states, “This year’s CNSA’s annual conference was a great success and a lot of fun. It was great to seechooseNursing.com there. It is nice to know that there is an organization out there that is dedicated to the success of, not only the students, but the nursing profession as a whole.”

CNCC member Katie Bray said, “Attending the California Nursing Students Association is always exhilarating. The students are always high energy and remind me why I chose the profession many years ago. It is also exciting to see them react to our www.choosenursing.com campaign. They are our best ambassadors to nursing, the noblest of professions.”
