Student Organizations

Our student organizations offer you a way to get involved outside of the classroom. They also provide a great way to network, make friends and learn more about the nursing profession.

Black Student Nurse Organization

The Black Student Nurse Organization provides members opportunities to participate in social, academic, professional,  and networking activities that facilitate nursing students of color’s interests and issues/concerns in the nursing profession and ensure support is present. This organization will help foster connections to resources and mentorship programs that will help nursing students of color successfully navigate nursing school and build bridges to their future. Along with developing nursing leadership skills and connections with community-based organizations, corporations and other organizations, the organization will work to promote health and wellness education in local and global communities. This organization is open to all Northern Illinois University students pursuing a degree in nursing.

Student Nurses' Organization (SNO)

The Student Nurses' Organization brings nursing students together to provide intellectual and professional growth. You will engage in community affairs and explore other professional organizations both locally and nationally. Members of the SNO are the official representatives for the School of Nursing student body.

American Assembly for Men in Nursing (AAMN)

The Northern Prairie Alliance is focused on bettering the lives of NIU nursing students through advocacy, inclusion, education and service to others. This chapter of AAMN encourages students to embrace the social aspects of nursing school outside the classroom. NPA connects students with peers outside their track to engage in community and campus events. 

Student Advisory Committee (SAC)

The Student Advisory Committee reports student concerns to the School of Nursing administration and faculty. They work to continually improve the nursing program by keeping an open, positive dialogue between staff and students. In addition, the SAC appoints members to the Grade Review Panel and assists in teaching award nominations.
