Class Governance

All nursing students are encouraged to participate in the various campus activities and University governance. The Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing & Health Sciences also provides opportunities for nursing students to participate in College governance.

Each entering class nominates and elects its own officers, including a President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary to represent their interests and address concerns at the departmental, college and university levels through dialogue and collaboration with faculty advisors and administrators. Individual classes must consult with the College’s Director of Admissions & Student Services before planning fundraising activities. Fundraising activities should focus on serving the community.
