BIO

The Executive Director of the FNSNA also serves as the Executive Director of the National Student Nurses Association.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"In light of the looming shortage of registered nurses, the support povided by the FNSNA for nursing education is critical.  The impact of an inadequate supply of registered nurses will be felt by individuals as well as by families and employers.  Funding for scholarships is essential to provide qualified recipients with the tuition funds they need to complete their nursing education. Scholarship support decreases the amount of loan repayments and for many students allows them to attend school full-time and enter the workforce sooner."
