ONA Student Affiliate Membership
ONA has developed a close relationship with the Oregon Student Nurses Association (OSNA) to advance and promote the field of nursing at every level, from education to practice, now and for generations to come. To foster this relationship, membership in OSNA and the National Student Nurses Association (NSNA) grants you Student Affiliate Membership in ONA.

Oregon Student Nurses' Association (OSNA)
OSNA is the Oregon state chapter of the National Student Nurses’ Association (NSNA). If you are a nursing student in Oregon, or interested in learning more about becoming a nurse, we hope that you find the support and information you need for your journey to become a nurse on their website.
