We will try something different this year. On our office door we will post a monthly calender stating when there will be office hours. These usual office hours will be hosted by the council by volunteering for their available times. We are nursing students as well and sometimes may not be able to make our scheduled times. So we thank you for being understanding if we are not there. However, if our door is open please feel free to pop by and ask us questions.

Charity Event
When: September 27th @7pm
Who: Leukemia and Lymphoma Light in he Night Walk (5km)

Light The Night Walk events are evenings filled with inspiration. During this leisurely walk, family and friends gather to bring light to the dark world of cancer. Thousands of walkers carry illuminated lanterns showcasing their relation to the cause; a white lantern for blood cancer patients and survivors, a red one to walk as a supporter, and a gold one in memory of a loved one lost.

With the donation of $10, you will receive one of our nursing t-shirts(either pink or green). Donations can be made within our office. There will be an informal after party at Finn’s Pub on the 2nd Floor, Johnstons Terminal. If you can’t make the walk, come join some friends–bring some friends–for a nice brew.

It’s just around the corner! The regional conference this year will be held in Kamploops, BC Oct 23-26 2014.The deadline for application is Sept. 19th. A total of four students will be selected by the NSA to be sent on this conference! This is an exciting opportunity to network, get some insight from other nursing students and meet fellow students.
