Nursing school is a big commitment. The Student Nurse Organization (SNO) at MSU wants to make sure no one goes through nursing school alone.
SNO’s mission: To empower future nurses by promoting community engagement through service events and providing a system of support through the undergraduate nursing experience.
“We hope members take away that nursing is a community-centered profession,” said Madelyn Cooper, SNO president. “We hope they graduate with a sense of compassion and care for all members of the community.”
SNO members practice community engagement through different service ventures, like making care packages for Harmony House, meeting with nursing home residents and donating to local food banks.
SNO during COVID-19
In the time of COVID-19, SNO looks different but is still available to provide a community for nursing students.
“Right now, we are choosing service events that minimize exposure as much as possible,” Cooper said. “We are encouraging members to utilize resources that allow community service to be done from home.”
All meetings will be held over Zoom.
