    The purpose of this association is to promote interaction among graduate nursing students, faculty, alumni, and the nursing community. The GNSA sponsors activities to enhance professional growth, provides an atmosphere for the exchange of ideas, facilitates collegiality among members and faculty, and assists student members by being a source of information. These objectives are achieved through sponsorship of conferences, speakers, instructional material, leadership with local projects, and through officer and committee representation on the various committees within the School of Nursing and the University.

    The GNSA promotes underrepresented nursing minorities by supporting the GNSA Diversity Club which advocates for and assists nursing students in the Hahn School of Nursing and Health Science.

    We seek to empower students to explore issues that affect healthcare, our community and our roles as caregivers. Drawing on our unique backgrounds, and with the help of expert educators, we aim to broaden our collective understanding of what it means to be part of a diverse community.

    We offer monthly meetings and discussions to educate our members on issues we collectively find meaningful and to create a space to discuss among peers.

    To create a forum where nursing students are able to contribute ideas regarding program philosophy and objectives, impact the community through volunteer projects, and establish a social network with other students and faculty.

We aim to encourage an environment where program philosophies can be turned into new ideas that establish better ways to positively impact social change and justice.
