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.
Sigma Theta Tau
The Beta Omega chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society in Nursing was established in October 1975. Members are comprised of undergraduate students, registered nurse students, graduate students and nurse leader candidates. Membership is based on established criteria and is by invitation only.
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.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about SNO, visit their office off the student lounge in the School of Nursing and Health Studies building (1240 Normal Road) or visit their Facebook page.
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 Nursing School 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.
