Student Nurses’ Association (SNA)

The St. Olaf Student Nurses’ Association (SNA)

The St. Olaf Student Nurses’ Association (SNA) is the academic student organization on campus for those interested in pursuing a career in nursing.  It is a nationally recognized chapter of the National Student Nurses’ Association (NSNA). By being a member of NSNA, you are automatically a member of the Minnesota Student Nurses’ Association (MSNA).

The SNA mission is to provide professional and personal support and guidance to current and future St. Olaf nursing students through mentorship and fellowship.  SNA strives to further the philosophy of holistic nursing through volunteer opportunities that enrich the mind, body, and spirit.

SNA promotes the St. Olaf Nursing Program and participates in National Nurses’ Week each May, hosting events for the St. Olaf community such as blood pressure screenings.  SNA members have the opportunity to participate in service projects, attend fun fellowship events, develop a sense of community among class years, and counsel prospective nursing students.

SNA is inclusive of all class years.  Meetings are held monthly.  If you have questions, please contact Mary Beth Kuehn, Associate Professor of Nursing and SNA Advisor.  kuehn@stolaf.edu.
