The UTNSA newsletter has been sent out to all members! If you haven’t received it, and would like to receive the newsletter, please message the UTNSA Facebook page (www.facebook.com/utnsa13)! We can’t wait to meet you at our first meeting on September 14th at 7-8pm on campus in CLA 1.106!
Here’s the rest of the Fall 2016 meeting dates! All are still from 7-8pm in CLA 1.106.
Don’t forget! We have our 2nd to last UTNSA meeting TONIGHT, Thurs, April 14th, in CBA 4.326! We’ll be featuring DOUBLE guest speakers, Mrss. Edgar and Hentzen, who are both S1 instructors with experience in Pediatrics and Maternity (L&D)! This will be an awesome opportunity to learn more about these specialities if you’re interested in working with babies/children!
We’re also going to be raffling off a Kaplan book!
See y’all there!
As promised, here is the application form for our first-ever UTNSA Scholarship! The amount is $200, and the application deadline is Monday, April 4th, at 11:59pm via email to me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Requirements: You must be a paid UTNSA member of this semester and have at least 1 semester of active member status. Members who are more involved in UTNSA have a higher chance of winning.
Remember that even if you don’t have active member status right now, you may still have a chance to be one as we still have some volunteering and socials happening before the scholarship application deadline of April 4th. You need to have attended 3 meetings, 3 socials, and done 6 hours of volunteering to be considered active member status.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and the Exec Board is excited to read your application!

It was such a privilege and pleasure to serve you as your President this year, and I hope you’ve had a really positive experience with being a part of this organization. I also want to thank all candidates for running, and I enjoyed listening to all your speeches. If I could, I’d want to elect all of you!

As mentioned in the last meeting, our Student Government Representative continues to be Kelsey Mumford as she ran through University Elections last month and won so don’t forget to congratulate her as well!
Here’s the link to this meeting’s Powerpoint slides in case you missed anything, and I’ll be sending out the UTNSA scholarship application form tomorrow!
