Attention LPN students!
EVERY NURSE COUNTS!
As of June 30, 2011, there were a total of 14 baccalaureate nursing (BSN) programs, 38 associate degree (ADN) programs, and 35 practical nursing (PN) programs approved by KBN. For the 2010-2011 year there were over 1300 PN graduates. Kentucky Association of Nursing Students recognizes Practical Nursing as an integral part of nursing and the health care team and wishes to extend an invitation for membership to those not already involved with KANS.
So many of our Nursing Programs here in Kentucky have integrated the LPN students and the RN students, as well as provided a streamlined way for LPNs to transition into the RN program. I believe belonging to the same student organization further promotes this integration and only encourages the team work that is so essential in our profession.
You can find the NSNA Mission Statement HERE, and below is an excerpt regarding membership.
“* RN-to-BSN students are also eligible for membership. Prenursing students enrolled in college or university programs who are taking the prerequisite courses designed as preparation for entrance into a program leading to an associate degree, diploma, or baccalaureate degree in nursing are eligible to join as associate members.”
