California Nursing Students' Association (CNSA), Biola chapter
Biola CNSA Mission:
Our mission is to equip Biola nursing students to be nurse leaders that they may better influence their class, their community, and their world for the Lord Jesus Christ.
Biola CNSA Vision:
Our ultimate purpose is to show students the art and science of caring holistically for human beings in body, mind, and soul until every wound and disease is treated.
What We Do:
We accomplish these high callings by creating roles for students to be involved in many areas of leadership for the rest of the nursing department. CNSA sends participants to the state-wide CNSA convention to learn about professional endeavors and to meet with recruiters. Biola CNSA is mostly concerned about creating a sense of community during all five years of participation in the program through:
- Medical related chapels
- All level lunches
- Professional speakers
- Ceremonial events and holiday parties
