Nursing Students

Ways to become involved with PCNA!

1. Become a Student Representative:

The Pierce County Nurses Association Board of Directors invites students to apply to be a representative on the PCNA board.

Student Representatives must be accepted into or currently enrolled in a nursing program in Pierce, Thurston, Kitsap, Mason, Grays Harbor, Jefferson or Clallam County at the time of application and continue in their nursing program for the duration of their term. Term—September to June.

The PCNA Board meets monthly Sept to June. If appointed by the PCNA board, the Student Representative is asked to attend all meetings or notify the President or Executive Director in advance. This is a non-voting position that provides the PCNA board insight and feedback from current nursing students.
