b) Elevate the level of health knowledge. Promote wellness and prevention within the college community and the Cumberland County communities.

General Information

The Student Nurse Association is a program level club that allows students to become familiar with professional associations in nursing. The National SNA provides job fairs and conferences aimed at the student nurse population. Faculty and Staff from CCC Nursing Program have participated in providing educational sessions at the SNA conferences in Atlantic City.

Students who participate in the CCC SNA are afforded various opportunities to serve the community, such as blood pressure screenings at Health Fairs and CCC Nursing Program awareness at College events. Students participate in fundraisers to offset the costs associated with the CCC Nursing Pin, as well as the costs to host a 'post pinning' reception for family and loved ones. Nursing Program tee shirts, sweats and other merchandise is offered through the SNA. Officers of the SNA hold leadership responsibilities and have provided the 'voice' of the students in recent efforts such as a change in clinical uniforms. Membership is free, all nursing students are encouraged to participate in this worthwhile association.
