Nursing Student Organizations
At the College of Nursing and Public Health, you’ll quickly find that life outside of the classroom is vibrant and diverse. You can join Student Nurses Acting for Progress (SNAP), our internal organization that discusses issues within the College. Or you can branch out to a state or national association. There are many resources to take advantage of.
