Hello fellow future nurses of America! I will be graduating December 2016 from Henry Ford College’s Nursing Program. I am part of the first cohort going through my program’s new concept based curriculum. I am the Membership Director of the Student Nurse Association at HFC, as well as a Peer Mentor for incoming nursing students and a student representative on the Curriculum Committee. My team of 15 nursing students and faculty from HFC’s Nursing Program will be traveling to Belize this December on a humanitarian trip to provide acute care and education in vulnerable populations. I am also enrolled in the University of Michigan-Flint’s RN-BSN program and will begin taking classes this summer. I am not sure what type of nursing path I want to take just yet, and I am ok with that. What I do know is that I want to be a part of the University of Michigan Hospital-Ann Arbor family, and be amongst the most dedicated, caring, and innovative minds in the country.
MNSA is so excited to introduce our brand new logo!! It was designed by the Board of Directors, and the finishing touches, including the final product, was done by members of Hope College, including our very own Membership Director, Jacqueline Savalle! What do you think?!!
MNSA is now accepting applications for the Community Health & Image and Breakthrough to Nursing Position! Please email Jacqueline Savalle regarding your interest or with any questions at Membership@MichiganNSA.org.
Congrats to our own Michigan Nursing Students Association for winning TWO awards at the National Student Nurses Association 2016 Convention! MNSA won the Most Outstanding State Website award, and the criteria for winning this award was based on the ease of navigation around the website, the overall look and design, the relevance and timeliness, and the balance of content posted. The 2015-2016 Communications Director, Kush Patel, was in charge of the MNSA website, so congratulations!
The second award was the Winners Way, Group V award, which is a NSNA membership incentive contest for state constituents based on their total state membership enrollment as of February 3, 2016.
Congrats to the University of Detroit Mercy for winning the 2016 NSNA Precious Metals Award! This is the NSNA school constituent award program for membership recruitment! Way to go!
Congrats to Grand Valley State University's Student Nurse Association for winning the 2016 NSNA Award for the "Most Successful Breakthrough to Nursing Project!" Their yearly project is "Girl Scouts Explore Nursing," where local Girl Scout troops come to GVSU's Health Science building where nursing classes are held. They travel to different stations around the school, which include learning to take vital signs and playing with the "live" mannequins!
