Nursing Guys Club

Nursing Guys Club is a branch of Undergraduate Nursing Society. Founded in 2011 by Tyler Hume, NGC is a club designed to equip nursing students with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigating difficult social and ethical issues that may arise in clinical practice. Though the name may specify “males” our group is made available to the student nursing community as a whole.  We strive to advocate for the nursing profession by going out into the community and educating the general population on what nursing is by better defining it. This accomplished through various events such as high school visits, panels, and social gatherings.

NGC will also give you the opportunity to collaborate with nursing students from all years of BN program, providing you with the mentorship necessary to succeed in your program!

What is the time commitment?

NGC meets at least once per month, usually during a lunchtime or evening. We typically run 2 -4 events a year which may require at most a day long commitment. In addition, NGC will compensate its members for anytime spent outside of those windows planning and coordinating any events.
