The Nursing Science Society (NSS) represents all undergraduate nursing students to the School of Nursing, Queen's University, and the Kingston community.
The NSS consists of elected student-representatives and hired individuals who meet on a bi-weekly basis to discuss issues concerning nursing students and to maintain communication across all six streams of nursing classes. The NSS plans many nursing-specific and campus-wide events. The NSS also strives to provide Queen’s nursing students with unique opportunities that foster their professional development, strengthen their health and well-being, ignite their ability to give back to worthy causes, and encourage growth as undergraduate students. The NSS gives back to the Kingston community by organizing numerous charitable events that benefit local organizations and health agencies. The NSS fosters professional development by hosting career workshops and student-run conferences in collaboration with the Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario and the Canadian Nursing Students’ Association. The NSS sits on the Alma Mater Society, the Nursing Orientation Committee, the School of Nursing Academic Council and the Faculty of Health Sciences Faculty Board Executive to advocate for all the students it represents.
There are many opportunities to get involved with the NSS. Through first-year internships, Class Councils, General Assembly, Orientation Committee, and the numerous initiatives the NSS holds throughout the year, the opportunities are endless!
