The Student Nurses Association (SNA) is a national organization designed specifically for nursing students. There is a chapter of SNA to represent nursing students at Sacred Heart University.
The SNA board acts as a liaison between students and faculty. The board also organizes events both on and off campus. These events help to build community and promote the development of skills, standards and ethics that are needed to become a responsible member of the nursing professions.
Community service is an important part of the SNA and is strongly encouraged. SNA members participate in a number of on and off campus service opportunities including, but not limited to: health fairs, food and clothing drives, and blood drives.
SNA also offers mentoring for younger members allowing new students to develop positive study habits and have a resource on campus if they need it. Members of SNA have the opportunity to attend both local, state, and national conferences. Being part of the SNA is a great way to become connected to the nursing community both locally and nationally.

“I joined the SNA because I wouldn’t want to go on this wild journey to becoming a nurse with any other group of people. Everyone in the SNA has a passion to help those who need a little extra care and love. You won’t find another group of students more motivated and passionate about the work we do.” -Sara Chow, Class of 2020
