Undergraduate Nursing Society (UNS)
UNS plays a vital role in representing nursing students across all years of the undergraduate program
The Undergraduate Nursing Society (UNS) is a student organization offering leadership and participatory opportunities with members chosen/elected by their peers.
UNS endeavours to enrich the lives of nursing students professionally, academically and socially through a variety of initiatives including faculty, university and community volunteerism, fundraising for causes inside and outside the faculty and events. The UNS plays a vital role in communication to nursing students across all years of the undergraduate program.
UNS executive members sit on a number of faculty committees, providing opportunities to learn – and potentially have a say – about the governance of the faculty. All students are encouraged to become involved in any way that is comfortable: email is checked on a regular basis at firstname.lastname@example.org and participation in any form is always welcome.
