The Foothills Nursing Students' Association (FNSA) was formed in 1965, and its first constitution drawn up in 1966. Members were students registered in the three year diploma program at the Foothills Hospital School of Nursing. The objectives of the Association were "to foster a spirit of unity and fellowship among the members of FNSA and provide opportunities for personal and professional development"; "to enable the members of FNSA to have the privileges enjoyed by a faculty society of the University of Calgary"; and "to encourage all enterprises that help tomake the school progressive." The legislative powers of FNSA were vested in The Students' Council, Foothills Hospital School of Nursing. The Council managed the business and affairs of FNSA and was the Association's policy-making body. The Association ceased to exist upon the closing of the School of Nursing in 1995.
