The Sinclair School of Nursing (SSON) is one of two schools this year to earn the National Student Nurses’ Association’s NSNA Stellar School Chapter Recognition. The award recognizes school chapters for their ongoing involvement in NSNA and their commitment to shared governance and professional development.

The NSNA Stellar School Chapter certificate and pins were presented to faculty advisor, Donna Otto, and school chapter president, Annaliese Moore, at the NSNA 66th Annual Convention April 4-8, 2018, in Nashville.

Moore was joined by four of her fellow Student Nurses’ Association members at the annual conference. Moore, along with Liz Kimsey, May Mathews, TJ Headley and Zach Forby, make up the chapter’s executive board. With the flexibility of the professors, the team was able to attend the weeklong conferences, where they attended presentations, met nurse leaders, networked with student nurses from across the country and served as delegates, voting on resolutions and policy changes for NSNA.

“It is an amazing honor to work with such energetic, positive, eager students and to help guide them as they grow in the profession of nursing,” says Donno Otto, Instructor Emerita of Nursing and Faculty Advisor to the Student Nurses’ Association.
