Students for Professional Nursing

The role of the professional registered nurse includes participation in professional organizations. We believe that this experience should begin at the student level; therefore, Kent State University at Salem offers BSN students the opportunity to gain this type of knowledge while pursuing their degree. The Students for Professional Nursing Organization (SPN) is available to all nursing students starting at the sophomore level. This organization participates in fundraising, community service and other activities on campus and in the community. Our goal is to create an atmosphere of social integration into the role of the nurse and to engage students in the many facets of nursing.
