Get Involved at Research College of Nursing

At RCoN we believe in the value of student programs and organizations as a means to attain our mission and values for every student. Here, you will hone your organizational, interpersonal, and leadership skills. Our goal is to provide nursing students opportunities to become more active participants in our communities and provide services to the greater society.

Make Your Mark

You will have many opportunities to get involved outside the classroom at RCoN. Student organizations along with social and educational programming help students to develop their leadership skills, build school spirit and camaraderie, and interact with other students, faculty, staff, and members of the community.

Voice Your Ideas

We provide a number of forums for students to engage in the building process of RCoN. Administration at RCoN highly value and consider student feedback regarding College governance, curriculum, and student life issues.
