Student Organizations - University of Iowa Association of Nursing Students (UIANS)


The mission of UIANS is to serve the nursing students of the University of Iowa and advocate for the nursing profession. In doing so, UIANS hosts various events such as: Progressive Nursing Day, a Pinning Ceremony for graduating seniors, blood drives, a Student Mentor Program, and various fundraising activities. UIANS also participates in and contributes to several community events including: The Mobile Clinic, Dance Marathon, and River Fest. Promoting nursing on a political level is also something UIANS values. As a result, UIANS is proud to send students to both state and national conventions where students can write and vote on resolutions and make a difference in the lives of others throughout the nation.
