College Council of Nursing Students

The College Council of Nursing Students (CCNS) is an official organization for all ASU nursing students. All pre-nursing and professional program undergraduate students enrolled in the College of Nursing and Health Innovation are represented on the Council by elected Class Representatives for each level of nursing.


  • To provide for cooperation, understanding, and a direct line of communication between undergraduate students and the faculty and administration of the college and Associated Students of Arizona State University Downtown (ASASUD).
  • To promote, support and represent the student role in the undergraduate nursing program, including the pre-nursing program and the professional Upper Division program.
  • To provide the student nursing population with volunteer opportunities and events that harbor a sense of community, intellectual and academic growth, and the promotion of health and nursing.
  • Serves as the governing body for all undergraduate nursing students and arranges nursing and school-related activities.


Students may hold a desired office (if all qualifications are met) and exercise the various rights and privileges of membership. Offices are available on the Executive Council and General Council.
