School of Nursing
When you join the School of Nursing, you become part of a supportive community with a shared passion for the profession. We offer many opportunities to get involved, through an active network of student groups, volunteer opportunities and a unique living environment dedicated to nursing students.
A connected and driven community
Our clinics enable you to work alongside one another as you put your skills to use for those most in need. You might join the Quinnipiac Student Nurses Association (QSNA) or the Graduate Student Nurses Association (GSNA). Students who qualify may join the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nurses. These groups participate in special outings, host guest lectures, organize fundraisers and volunteer in the community.
You also have the option to live in a unique Living-Learning Community (LLC) designed specifically for first-year nursing students. Here, you’ll have the chance to participate in specialized activities related to health care, as well as study sessions, group discussions and student-run social events. The LLC provides you the opportunity to meet with faculty informally to hear stories about their professional journey and discuss what you can expect as you begin yours.
As a nursing student, you'll have the opportunity to join university organizations that connect you with other students of similar faith, ethnicity, identity and academic interests.
Health-based initiatives such as the annual “Walk for the Cure” and “Relay For Life” enable students to make a positive impact outside the university community. Our student nurses associations and international honor society open up a network of resources for students, as well as additional opportunities to make a tangible difference in the lives of others.
Student Nurses Association
The Quinnipiac Student Nurses Association (QSNA) provides mentoring and support for students, sponsors service projects and participates in events like local health fairs and clothing drives for military personnel stationed overseas. Each spring a group of senior nursing students from QSNA attends the National Student Nurses Association Convention, which holds leadership activities and career development events. The School of Nursing also recently launched the Graduate Student Nurses Association (GSNA).
Sigma Theta Tau International
In 2006, Quinnipiac established the Tau Rho chapter of the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing. One of over 500 chapters around the world, membership into Tau Rho is offered by invitation to undergraduate- and graduate-level nursing students who have demonstrated excellence in academics, as well as to notable leaders in the field of nursing.
