"We are so proud of the recognition our students received at this year's MOSA Convention. SNA's motto is 'NWCC: Nursing With Compassion for Community' and we have been truly blessed to have participated in the DAD project and other activities this past year. The nursing faculty looks forward to continuing to serve our communities with our nursing students, while providing them with a quality education as they prepare to enter the nursing workforce," said Monica Williams, SNA adviser.
