A MESSAGE FROM THE 2016-2017 RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE CHAIR:

Above all, Texas Nursing Students’ Association is a learning process with

emphasis on “students”.  Resolutions not only state what we stand for as an

association, but also teach us effective communication and organization skills to

practice after we graduate.  On behalf of the Board of Directors, I encourage all

state constituencies to submit a resolution representing their association.
