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 past, present, and future of 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, along with a variety of fun fundraising activities. UIANS also participates in and contributes to several community events including: the Mobile Clinic, Dance Marathon, and River Fest. Lastly, UIANS greatly values promoting nursing at the political level.
