Below is a brief introduction of the association.
Hopefully, I will get responses from friends whoever wish to say any words of suggestion or inquiry or critic..SOmetimes people see what we dont see, and by SHARING we can be better as a big strong unit.
In the name of Allah the Most Gracious and Compassionate
Nursing is a noble profession and highly sought after (demanding). Towards producing better holistic nurses in the future, the platform should be established to fine-tune the nurses’ interpersonal and intrapersonal skills as much as possible during their 3-years or 4-year basic nursing training /education. Hence, the National Nursing Students Association is proposed to be the platform for the Malaysian nursing students from all higher learning institutions (IPTA, IPTS and Ministry of Health @ KKM). The National Nursing Students Association (NaNSA) is the professional organization for student nurses. NaNSA is a non-profit making organization dedicated to fostering the professional development of nursing students.
a) To assemble all nursing students from all nursing schools in Malaysia under one roof of national association.
b) To care for students’ welfare and necessities with a cooperation from higher administration.

d) Convey the standards and ethics of the nursing profession;
