Student Nurses

Student nurses are a valued part of the American Nurses Association (ANA) community.

ANA respects the insight of student nurses as the nurse leaders of tomorrow, and will support you in your career, every step of the way. There’s no need to wait for licensure to start benefiting from ANA – as an ANA Student Subscriber, you’re ahead of the game.


ANA offers a lot of resources for students. I found the Welcome to the Profession Kit and the student online community to be very helpful.

Resources for student nurses:

Code of Ethics

If there’s one essential read for student nurses, it’s this. The Code of Ethics for Nurses with Interpretive Statements, or “The Code”, is a vital tool for all nurses now and in the future.

While the foundational values of nursing do not change, The Code is regularly updated to ensure it’s relevant to nurses today. It supports all nurses, from students to Chief Nursing Officers (CNO), in providing consistently respectful, humane, and dignified care.
