The Hope Student Nurses Association (HSNA) is a constituent of the National Student Nurses' Association (NSNA) and of the Michigan Nursing Students' Association (MNSA).

The purpose of the HSNA is to:

  • Provide programs representative of fundamental and current professional interests and concerns.
  • Aid in the nursing students' development of the whole person, his/her professional role, and his/her responsibility for the health care of people in all walks of life.


  • Active members are those students enrolled in the nursing program at Hope who have paid dues to the NSNA and MNSA.
  • Associate members are those students enrolled in the pre-nursing program in preparation for entrance into the baccalaureate degree program at Hope. Associate members shall have all of the privilages of membership except the right to hold office as president, first or second vice president at the local, state, or national levels.
