Please note the policy change regarding NBNA student applications for membership.

1.  Each student application for membership must have a letter on school stationery and signed by Nursing Administration stating:
1)  The student is currently enrolled; and
2) Does not have an LPN/LVN or RN license.

2.  The chapter cannot forward the student application to the National Office without a copy of the Nursing School letter attached.

3.  Direct Student Applications that are sent to the National Office by the student must also have the same letter from the Nursing School attached.

4.  If more than one student from the same school is applying for NBNA membership at the same time, the school can submit one letter with the names of all students who are applying.

All BBNA students who have completed their 2021membership application must request a letter from their schools of nursing and submit to our membership chair – Dr. Tedra Smith.  All student membership applications must include a letter from the school of nursing.  All schools of nursing will be made aware of this new requirement.
