2013 Best School Of Nursing For Men
The Awards Committee and the Board of Directors of the American Assembly for Men has named RCC School Of Nursing as one of the three schools to be recognized as with the award for Best School Of Nursing For Men.
The Student Nurses' Organization (SNO) is a vital part of the nursing programs at RCC, and has attained state and national recognition in recent years at California Nursing Students Association (CNSA) and National Student Nurses' Association (NSNA) conferences. RCC student nurses have held offices in CNSA and have represented RCC SON on state and national levels. Nursing students are strongly encouraged to join SNO, and attend as many meetings and events as possible.
SNO provides support and guidance for students enrolled in Pre-Nursing courses and those in the ADN (RN) and VN programs. SNO provides leadership, education, and mentoring opportunities on local, state, and national levels. Breakthrough to Nursing is another program in SNO to share information about college and nursing as a profession to elementary, middle, junior high and high school students. This program supports underrepresented and underprivileged groups to look at college and nursing as a career choice. RCC SON has also been recognized as a designated Men in Nursing chapter.
The "SNO Flurry," SNO's monthly newsletter, helps keep students and faculty up-to-date on events and student happenings throughout the school year.
The organization offers learning experiences outside of the classroom for personal and professional growth. SNO provides many opportunities for students to participate meaningfully in college and community activities, while promoting the achievement and maintenance of healthful living.
Members of SNO assume responsibility for contributing to nursing education in order to provide the highest quality of care. Our SNO members and advisors keep very busy!
