Who are we?

The Multicultural Student Nurse Association (MSNA) was organized during the 2004-05 academic school year in an effort to increase support of multicultural nursing students at East Carolina University College of Nursing.  The organization addresses the concerns of minority students and faculty within the College of Nursing regarding cultural sensitivity issues and the lack of minority students that successfully finish the BSN program.  MSNA became an official organization active on the campus of East Carolina University within the same year and is lead by many students who are focused on recruiting more minorities into the nursing program at ECU.


Mission Statement

The purpose of the Multi-Cultural Student Nurse Association shall be to increase opportunity and success for all students seeking a career in nursing. Further, MSNA seeks to promote cultural competency among the student nursing body and the community. The goals are to improve cultural awareness that may be applied in clinical settings. Additionally, MSNA strives to promote unity within diversity at the College of Nursing and surrounding communities.
