“As past president of the Student Nurses’ Association at UH Manoa, I would highly encourage all student nurses to get involved with the school to make the most out of your education. By getting involved with SNA you can participate in great leadership opportunities, volunteer activities, and social events. Being the SNA president really taught me a lot about myself and helped me to become the professional nurse I am today. I learned and practiced leading teams, delegation skills, and time management. I was also fortunate to participate in the national NSNA convention to see first hand how students can have an influence on the nursing profession. My position as president allowed me to speak my voice on behalf of the nursing student body and participate on school committees. Participating with SNA has been a wonderful experience!!” – Kiki Thurston, Undergraduate Nursing, Class of 2019
