Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden students have a solid reputation for 'having fun while doing good' through involvement with international, national, and local nursing organizations. Our students are fully immersed in engaged civic learning – connecting campus resources with the needs of vulnerable people in local neighborhoods and around the world. They are change agents and champions of community health, all while they build vital peer networks and develop the professional skills critical to their success in the workplace.
They are actively involved in local, national, and international nursing organizations, including:
Rutgers–Camden Student Nurses' Association
Rutgers–Camden Student Nurses' Association (SNA) is our local, student-run organization that works to make a positive impact on the City of Camden and improve the well-being of its citizens by forging partnerships with soup kitchens, places of worship, and community groups. The SNA also conducts health assessments and screenings across campus, and coordinates care-package drives for active duty U.S. troops. Committed to supporting classmates and promoting health equity for the citizens of Camden –and beyond– our group motivates students to expand into roles as nurse leaders and patient advocates.
National Student Nurses Association
National Student Nurses Association (NSNA) mentors future nurses and facilitates their entrance into the profession. Membership in the Rutgers–Camden School of Nursing chapter of the NSNA is available through the New Jersey Nursing Students, Inc. (NJNS), a pre-professional organization representing student nurses across New Jersey.
Sigma Theta Tau International
Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) is the international honor society of nursing. The Eta Mu chapter, affiliated with the Rutgers School of Nursing—Camden, was chartered in 1984. Eligible nursing students are invited to join the Eta Mu chapter of STTI.
