Nursing Guys Club

What is the Nursing Guys Club?

Falling under the Undergraduate Nursing Society (UNS), NGC is a club designed to attract prospective university students to pursue the wonderful and reward profession of nursing. By promoting nursing, specifically here at the University of Calgary, we aim to the question, “Why should I choose nursing?”. We strive to be inclusive to all people, focus on equity, and emphasize the importance of men in nursing as well.

Goals

We want to lessen the worldwide shortage of nurses, improve the percentage of male nursing students as well as inform students about the nursing profession, to hopefully probe the desire within them to make an impact in the lives of those around them. Nursing is such a rewarding and heartfelt career and we want students to know that.

Actions

NGC advocates for the nursing profession through educating students. We use brochures, visit high schools, use Zoom sessions, are involved in university open houses and offer high school students an opportunity to connect with registered nurses.

Mottos and Beliefs

Save one life, you’re a hero. Save a hundred lives, you’re a nurse - Anonymous

Nurses are the heart of healthcare 

It’s a beautiful thing when career and passion come together 

Never give-up on anybody because miracles happens every day
