Nursing Faculty/Curriculum Meetings - All Students Invited

There is still time to get involved this year. Is there one or more among you who is interested in governance? Want to get your interest/concerns heard? There is a solution! Be a class representative to the faculty by attending the faculty/curriculum meetings once a month. The next faculty meeting will be Friday, September 17th. Representatives need only attend one per month, which would be mutually agreed upon. We need representatives from the BS, the MSN, and the DNP programs. There is no better way to have your voice heard then to attend these meetings to represent yourself and your classmates/constituents. Please call Dr. Nancy MacMullen at 708.534.4043 or send her an email at n-macmullen@govst.edu to volunteer.
