Maxine S. Jacobs Student Nurses' (MSJSNA) Association


The Maxine S. Jacobs Student Nurses' Association (MSJSNA) seeks to contribute to nursing education in order to provide for the highest quality of health care. 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.

The Maxine S. Jacobs Student Nursing Association is open to all current enrolled TMCC nursing program students.  Our monthly meetings take place on the second Thursday of every month at 3:30 p.m. in RDMT 252.  This is a great way to get involved with fellow nursing program students and to participate in both school and community outreach activities.
