What does SNA do?

The Student Nurses' Association works diligently to make a difference in our school and community. Each year, we work on projects within our community as well as internationally. Our efforts allow us to be of service to others, as well as make a difference in the lives of others. Additionally, SNA helps with the School of Nursing Homecoming festivities. We also reach out to students who are thinking of attending the School of Nursing, or who have just been accepted into the School of Nursing program. SNA Representatives attend orientations and seminars throughout the school year to answer any questions student may have about nursing school and SNA.

SNA General Meetings

Each semester, SNA hosts a general meeting for pre-nursing and nursing students. At our meetings, the SNA brings in a variety of individuals that students can benefit from. During a typical SNA meeting, we recruit different nursing professionals (Nurse Practitioners, Critical Care Nurses, Nurse Anesthetists, etc.) to speak about their profession. All pre-nursing and nursing students will receive an invitation to the SNA Meetings via email from Mrs. Stephanie Hamberger. Please keep a look out for our emails and updates!

What is the cost to join SNA and what does that money go toward?

The cost is $45 for new members and $45 to renew a membership. This fee allows you to be a member of the UAB Nursing Chapter, Alabama State Chapter, and National Chapter. The money is used to help fund SNA projects as well as to send Delegates to represent UAB School of Nursing to State and National Conferences.
