PURPOSE/OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this article was to describe how a National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists affiliate partnered with a local university to engage clinical nurse specialist (CNS) students, enhance its mission and activities, and create succession planning opportunities, while providing mentorship and professional growth opportunities. DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT: Academic preparation of CNS students endeavors to instill professionalism. A 3-pronged partnership incorporating the inclusion of a student liaison on the board, presentation of student clinical work at the affiliate's annual conference, and development of a student scholarship was implemented. OUTCOMES: Membership in professional nursing organizations for a CNS student provides exposure and access to professional development resources, socialization to the role, rewarding networking opportunities with peers and colleagues, and leadership development. Anecdotal feedback demonstrated a better understanding of the CNS role, increased confidence, and enhanced knowledge on topics such as legislative advocacy as well as experiences of sharing clinical challenges with CNS colleagues. CONCLUSION: Partnership with the local university allowed the affiliate to maintain the influx of new CNSs, which sustains membership, nurtures the growth of new CNSs, and ensures the influx of new ideas. Furthermore, membership in professional nursing organizations is imperative to address the opportunities that exist in healthcare.
