The Nursing Science Society – Student Government at the School of Nursing

The Nursing Science Society (NSS) represents all undergraduate Queen’s Nursing students to the School of Nursing, the Alma Mater Society (AMS), the University, and the Kingston community. The NSS consists of elected and hired student leaders who meet on a bi-weekly basis to discuss issues concerning students, and to maintain communication between all six nursing classes. All general meetings are open to Queen’s Nursing students.

The NSS strives to help provide Queen’s nursing student with unique opportunities that foster their professional development, strengthen their health and well-being, ignite their ability to give back to worthy causes, and encourage their growth as undergraduate students. The NSS also works to give back to the Kingston community by organizing several charitable events that benefit local organizations. A focus of the NSS is to develop students’ professional careers by organizing career workshops, skill-building study sessions, student- run conferences, and maintaining communication with the Canadian Nursing Students’ Association. The NSS represents nursing students’ voices through on the Alma Mater Society, the Nursing Orientation Committee, the School of Nursing Academic Council, the Faculty of Health Sciences Faculty Board Executive, and more. We work to advocate for the best interests of students and ensure that your Queen’s experience is at the forefront of every decision being made!

There are many opportunities to get involved with the NSS through first year internship, class council, mentorship program, NSS executive assembly, orientation committee, annual nursing conference, and the numerous initiatives put on throughout the academic year.
