The Student Ambassador Program is a leadership program coordinated by the Office of the Dean. Every fall, nursing students are invited to apply for student ambassador positions and are selected based on an application and interview.
Student Ambassadors are school representatives and engage with administration, VIP guests, faculty/staff, alumni and other community partners at school and alumni events. The primary focus of the Student Ambassador Program is participating in recruitment activities and events, sharing their personal nursing school experiences and encouraging potential students to attend UH Manoa Nursing. Aligned with the school’s strategic plan, Student Ambassadors interact with alumni nurses and participate in valuable professional development workshops and trainings.
Student Ambassador Leaders previously served the School for one-year as a Student Ambassador. SA Leaders provide training and mentorship to new Student Ambassadors, and participate in all Student Ambassador activities.
“As a Nursing Student Ambassador, I’ve had the privilege of being a part of a community that fostered my growth as a student nurse and as a person. I was proud to be an official student representative responsible for leading tours of our high-fidelity simulation center, volunteering for school events and fundraisers, and overall being a positive role model for my classmates. This program provided me with ample networking opportunities and helped me create meaningful connections with professional nurses. This program gently nudged me out of my comfort zone, and I am grateful to be the professional nurse that it has molded me into.” – Reece Bonilla, Undergraduate Nursing, Class of 2019
