BSN Program Special Interest Groups

BSN students are encouraged to engage with peers who share their areas of interest within the nursing field.

Academic Council

The Academic Council is a group of students who represent students in the BSN Program, the school’s undergraduates. The council acts as a liaison between the school’s students, faculty, and administration and plays an active role in issues such as class and curricular changes, academic policies, and plans for the future of the School of Nursing. Learn more about the council.
