Ways to Engage Your Students with AACN This Year

The Graduate Nursing Student Academy (GNSA) provides free programs, services, and resources to graduate nursing students enrolled in master's and doctoral programs at AACN member schools. Encourage your students to join, as GNSA membership can help them prepare for careers as faculty members, researchers, advanced practice registered nurses, nurse leaders, policy experts, and healthcare administrators.

GNSA Liaisons are volunteers who connect their fellow students with the GNSA’s resources and provide feedback to the national Leadership Council while building their own national networks.
