As a chapter of the Oregon Student Nurses Association, UPSNA is a pre-professional organization comprised of future nurse professionals committed to furthering the nursing profession. Members of UPSNA enjoy the benefits of enriching the University of Portland learning community through professional development, social advocacy, and community service. While UPSNA is a nursing student organization, its greater goal is to promote health and wellness to the whole student body and the greater community.
The University of Portland Student Nurses Association is an assembly of future nurse leaders dedicated to the promotion of pre-professional development and discovery through the creation of a supportive community within the School of Nursing, holistic health and wellness promotion, and engagement in the greater UP community.

Once a member of UPSNA, you determine your level of involvement and participation. Each year, UPSNA plans many social, academic, and volunteer activities. Although attendance at events is not required for general association members, we encourage you to become involved and experience the most out of your nursing school career!
General association meetings are held once a month and provide all members an opportunity to stay informed on current events within UPSNA and the School of Nursing. Information regarding the date, time and location of meetings can be found on the UPSNA bulletin board on the 3rd floor of Buckley Center and on the UPSNA schedule.
Membership is open throughout the year. Applications are available next to the UPSNA bulletin board on the 3rd floor of Buckley Center or online UPSNA Membership. The cost of membership is $50 for two years or $30 for one year.
UPSNA offers grants of $50-200 to fund student-initiated projects that seek to further the mission of UPSNA. Grants may be used to subsidize philanthropic/advocacy work or professional development endeavors. To apply, please fill out the UPSNA Grant Application.
