School of Nursing Organizations

  • Dean's Circle
    Each year nursing students are invited to apply for membership in the School of Nursing Dean's Circle.  The Dean's Circle is a select group of nursing students who serve as School of Nursing ambassadors.  Participation in the Dean's Circle provides opportunities to develop teamwork and leadership skills by attending prospective student recruitment events, assisting with student service events, participating in the Nightingale awards banquet, interacting with the Dean and other administrators, and representing the School of Nursing at various university functions such as "Go for the Gold" and "Grizzly Day".  It is an opportunity for members to expand their role as a student and gain a unique perspective that will broaden their educational experience. 


  • Theta Psi Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau
    The Theta Psi chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society in Nursing, was chartered in April 1986 at Oakland University. Candidates for membership are selected on the basis of superior scholastic achievement and evidence of professional leadership potential.
  • SNAOU - Student Nurses Association of Oakland University (SNA-OU) SNA-OU offers a chance for nursing students to provide leadership in the school, mentor pre-nursing students and participate in service activities, political events at the university, state and national levels. Nursing and pre-nursing students are given the opportunity and encouraged to become members of the Michigan SNA and the National SNA, which provide information, networking, stimulation and exciting challenges.


  • National Black Nurses Association at Oakland University
    The purpose of the association is to give Oakland University nursing students an opportunity to promote unity among minorities and other students by providing a support network for pre-nursing students as well as current nursing students. NSNA allows members to increase their networking skills and ability to work with others while educating and informing the community about health risks that affect minorities.
