The NUS council, also known as the Nursing Undergraduate Society, is a student-run organization of McGill’s School of Nursing. Its primary mandate is to act as a liaison between staff and students, but it also provides a means of contact with other organizations and groups on campus and helps communicate with professional nursing groups throughout Canada.
It also takes care of all extracurricular activities for Nursing students (i.e. Frosh, Nursing-Engineering parties, Nursing Auctions, CNSA, Nursing Games, hoodies and sweatpants sales). Not only does the NUS play a social role in student life, but it also has an academic role to play. Therefore, if in need of assistance regarding grades or for suggestions for improvement for courses, the VP Academics would be the ones to speak to.
In order for the NUS to better reach the students, class representatives are present in every class according to program and year. Their role is to announce events the NUS is organizing, promote student participation within these events and to bring back suggestions and opinions to the council.
