Nursing Student Organizations

Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden students have a solid reputation for 'having fun while doing good' through involvement with local, national, and international 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 (SNA)

Rutgers–Camden Student Nurses' Association (SNA) is our local, student-run organization that works to encourage students to expand their roles as nurse leaders and patient advocates by working to make a positive impact on the City of Camden and improve the well-being of its citizens. Our Student Nurses' Association motivates students to build professional skills and establish a network of peers — they meet monthly to support and mentor classmates, and to promote health equity for the people of Camden and beyond by forging partnerships with soup kitchens, places of worship, and community groups. The SNA also conducts health assessments, provides health education and screenings at health fairs across campus, local schools, and surrounding neighborhoods.
