La Salle University, School of Nursing and Health Sciences
Mission & Purpose
The Minority Student Nurses Association (M.S.N.A.) of La Salle University seeks to enhance the educational experiences of minority nursing students, while preserving the uniqueness of those individuals who, by virtue of their own cultural and/or gender experiences, have the potential to be accomplished nurses and leaders in the nursing profession.

The M.S.N.A. was established for the purposes of:

1) improving retention and successful matriculation of minority nursing students through the undergraduate nursing program
2) identifying and securing financial aid opportunities for current minority nursing students
3) increasing recruitment of minority nursing students into the undergraduate nursing program
4) increasing professional networking opportunities for minority nursing students in preparation for exemplary nursing practice. All programs and activities of the M.S.N.A. are open to all nursing students regardless of race/ethnicity or gender. The standing offices of President, Secretary and Treasurer of the M.S.N.A. are currently vacant until elections are held in March 2002.

The local La Salle University chapter of the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association (NSSLHA) is a pre-professional organization that provides many benefits to those studying for a career in speech-language pathology. Student NSSLHA members can increase their involvement in the field by visiting professional work sites, engaging in group outreach programs, attending panel discussions, fundraising, and more.
