Student Handbook

Student Handbook for the Associate Degree Nursing Program (PDF)

Current students in the nursing program are responsible for the contents of the student handbook, which should be reviewed at the beginning of every semester and throughout the semester as needed.

National Student Nurse Association (NSNA)

The National Student Nurse Association represents 50,000 nursing students across the United States. Your program costs include a fee that supports NSNA. To enroll, visit the National Student Nurse Association website. There you will find a wealth of information on insurance, textbooks, job opportunities and professional networking.

The MCC model for student involvement is that of shared governance: a system of rules and policies that serve to engage individuals to participate in decision making. The MCC-Penn Valley NSNA is interested in not only educational concerns, but also civic, social and political involvement in healthcare topics. (See the Penn Valley NSNA Constitution and By-Laws for further information).
