SNA exists to assist both student nurses and nursing faculty in a variety of ways. The organization attempts to:

  1. familiarize its members with problems unique to nursing and with possible solutions to those problems;
  2. represent nursing students in campus affairs;
  3. provide student nurses an opportunity for professional development; and
  4. expand the knowledge and understanding of student nurses regarding their role in the medical community.

The SNA holds monthly meetings and is involved in a variety of events, including: Cystic Fibrosis walk-a-thon; participating in the state SNA convention and the National Association of Student Nurses' convention; mentoring by a Senior nursing student for a "Buddy" Junior nursing student; Christmas caroling at the local VA; tailgating for Homecoming; and sponsoring the Wildcat 5K Walk/Run.

Membership Requirements
Membership is open to all nursing students enrolled at Louisiana College and to any registered nurses who are seeking higher degrees. Members must attend a minimum of two meetings each semester and volunteer for a minimum of half of all SNA service related events each semester.
