Student Nurses Association Caps Year with 5th Annual Nightingale Ball
The Student Nurses Association (SNA) is a student-run organization for the advancement and support of nursing students.
For the past five years, the SNA has celebrated the hard work and achievements of UTMB student nurses with a special dinner and dance celebration called the Nightingale Ball, named after the mother of nursing, Florence Nightingale.
Attendees included junior and senior nursing students, faculty, administrators and alumni.
This event, supported by various organizations including the School of Nursing Alumni Association and the UTMB Parents Council, also bestowed service awards to several oustanding students.
