Student Activities

We are a community of learners and professionals. Students have many opportunities to build friendships and professional relationships.

The Student Nurses Association

The Student Nurses Association is a national organization that brings student nurses together to discuss current health care issues as well as celebrate the nursing profession. The state level informs each school’s chapter of upcoming events and issues that are important for student nurses. The National Student Nurses’ Association has a national convention that raises new issues that effect the future of nursing.

Valparaiso University’s Student Nurses Association is an organization of student nurses. One of the big benefits of being a member of the Student Nurses Association is being able to work with people in our community and inform the public and our university of important health issues. Each month we gather together at an informal meeting to plan community service projects that will be pursued in the upcoming months. We also relax and have fun. Also, the Student Nurses Association provides a forum to hear from nurses practicing in a wide variety of settings such as the hospital, community health, and flight nurses.

The Association of Aspiring Health Care Professionals (AAHP) is a new student organization that merged the Five-Year Physician Assistant Club, Health Care Leadership Student Association and Public Health Student Association into one robust inter-professional organization that encompasses all health profession majors.  This new organization provides a central hub for aspiring healthcare professionals to learn and meet students in other fields and will provide ample opportunities for students to network with each other and with health care professionals to gain insight into potential careers.  Members are also committed to service in the community.

All CONHP undergraduate students – Health Care Leadership, Health Science, Nursing, and Public Health – are welcome to be a part of the Association of Aspiring Health Care Professionals.
