Duke University School of Nursing Student Council
The Duke University School of Nursing Student Council is the governing body for all students in the school, and is composed of elected officers and class representatives. Its sole purpose is to serve the students’ educational and professional needs and provide a formal structure for student participation in a wide variety of events within the school. Activities include submitting information to the student listserv covering local events and opportunities of interest to students, co-sponsoring events at Duke with other organizations, (i.e., Duke University and Duke Medicine organizations, the local chapter of Sigma, and the Duke University School of Nursing Alumni Association). The Student Council enhances students’ educational experience by increasing awareness of resources and student services, encouraging student involvement in DUSON activities, and sponsoring events throughout the school year, including alumni and student socials, service projects, and career planning events.
