The College of Nursing offers a unique opportunity for students to become members of the UMass Dartmouth Student Nurses' Association (UMassDsna). UMassDsna is a constituency of the National Student Nurses Association (NSN) as well as the Massachusetts Student Nurses Association (MaSNA), pre-professional organizations operated by and for nursing students.
NSNA offers many programs, discounts on products (NSNA Journal, Imprint), services (such as liability insurance), and leadership opportunities. UMassDsna is an excellent vehicle for involvement in your chosen profession. Membership fees are very reasonable.
Members have opportunities to attend the national conventions at venues across the U.S. and state conventions held in the Boston area.
UMassDsna is a great way to get involved in the College of Nursing and to gain leadership skills that are valuable to every nurse.
The UMassDsna is involved in a number or philanthropy projects at UMass Dartmouth. We participate in many walks in New England, including the Relay for Life held here at UMass Dartmouth. Additionally, we participate in can drives for local food pantries, collecting new coats for children in need, and fun social events such as card-making for hospitalized children. We have also held numerous events to benefit the American Cancer Society.
New members are always welcome. Contact us to become a member or for more information.
