The JHUSNA completes a resolution each year that is sent in to the NSNA. A resolution is a written statement that is the basis for policies and actions of the NSNA. According to NSNA, resolutions are presented on matters of importance to NSNA, its members and constituent associations, the nursing profession, healthcare professionals, and the health needs of the public. Resolutions must address one topic of issue, be national in scope, and fall within the purposes and functions stated in the NSNA Bylaws and Mission. All NSNA constituent school chapters have the opportunity to submit a resolution every year.
