Take the GNSA Evaluation Survey

Each year, we ask our members to complete a survey with the goal of evaluating the impact of our services. With nearly 8,000 graduate nursing student members, it's vital that your voice is heard so that we can plan for the 2019-2020 academic year and continue to provide resources that will lead to success in your program.

Take a few minutes to complete the GNSA Evaluation Survey to share your comments and satisfaction with GNSA services. The survey provides you with an opportunity to review the many free resources available to you as a GNSA member.

Completing the survey will enter you into a drawing to win one of four $50 Amazon Gift Cards. The survey will close on November 15, 2019.
