We wish to both promote and encourage participation in community affairs and activities towards health care and the resolution of related social issues.

We encourage all students with a passion for nursing, whether you are already in the program or taking prerequisites, to join our group.

Upcoming Events

  • MSJSNA will be part of SGA's Spring 2014 Welcome Week and we hope to gain new members/friends. Please stop by and learn how to live a little healthier. We’ll be the loud ones with the spinning prize wheel.

Recent Events

  • During Welcome Week of the Spring 2014 semester we had a booth in the cafeteria aimed at Diabetes Awareness.  Passersby were able to spin our prize wheel, learn more about making healthy life choices, and mail their future selves their new year’s resolution.
  • Our first, hopefully bi-annual, Family Orientation was a success. The MSJSNA felt that family members needed to understand the rigors of the program, and we wanted to build a stronger bond not only between cohort members but also between cohorts.  We had wonderful speakers along with snacks and refreshments.
  • We went Christmas caroling to Renown Pediatrics and Manor Care over the holidays.  We had a great time spreading cheer to those who could use a little extra.
  • MSJSNA participated in the Nevada Nurses Association’s Nurse Appreciation Night where we helped to raise funds for nursing scholarships. 
  • We encourage local teens to think about their college plans and how TMCC's Nursing Program can help ensure their future success at Sparks Middle School, Spanish Springs High School and Reno High School.
  • Our members also participated in the American Heart Association’s Go Red event where we performed free blood pressure checks and provided education on easy ways to improve heart health.
