Student Organizations At Work
The Future Of Nursing
Our strategic plan is to support the growth and development of nursing students at all levels. The Future Black Nurses Association was started by member Evelyn Merriett RN, MSN and Dr. Josie Veal at Milwaukee Area Technical College 16 years ago and continues to thrive. We are proud of our future leaders.
Dr. Melanie Gray and past president Sharron Coffie established the Multicultural Association at Cardinal Stritch University five year ago. We are proud to the new leaders that have emerged from this student group.
