The Student Nurse Association (SNA) - TTU's Chapter was organized September 1980 with 79 charter members. The Tennessee Association of Student Nurses (TASN) is for students what the Tennessee Nurses' Association is for professional nurses. The Student Nurse Association assists students to develop a broader view of professional nursing and to participate in state and national student nurse activities. All nursing majors are eligible for membership with dues payable each September. Activities include attendance at the Tennessee Association of Student Nurses' Convention each fall (October/November) and the National Student Nurses' Association (NSNA) Convention each April. The Chapter sponsors a community service project each spring and a fund raiser during the year.
