Ways to Get Involved

Graduate Entry Student Representative

A call for student representatives will be sent out each year in August for the upcoming academic year. The responsibilities of the student representatives include attending Graduate Studies Committee, collecting information from fellow students, bringing those issues to the meetings, and reporting business and resolutions back to your peers.  The student representatives are active participants in the business of the GSC and subcommittee as we consider curricular and program issues.  You will be a voting member and your perspective is valued.


outstanding student achievement within the College of Nursing. The program is designed to highlight students who best exemplify LIVE WELL and who create a positive impact on their community.

Nominators must submit a short survey explaining why the student is deserving of this award. College faculty, staff and students can nominate a student for outstanding leadership and can nominate multiple students each month. Nominees’ leadership and engagement must exemplify at least one characteristic of LIVE WELL.

A college-led committee will select one winner each month based on nominations. Monthly winners will be recognized throughout the college and be eligible for the LIVE WELL Outstanding Leadership scholarship. The LIVE WELL Outstanding Leadership scholarship is a $500 scholarship given to one of the monthly winners at the end of the academic year.

We encourage the entire College of Nursing community to nominate deserving students and join together to appreciate our student leaders. The first of every month nominations will close for that month’s winner. Our first winner for the academic year will be selected in September.

If you have any questions about the program please contact Gina Taff (Taff.6@osu.edu).

“The Beat” Student Newsletter

All students are automatically added to receive The Beat, our College of Nursing student newsletter. You will receive this every Friday during the school year and once a month over the summer. We will share important dates/deadlines, upcoming events, employment opportunities and more. If you are interested in more information about The Beat, please email con-thebeat@osu.edu.

Student Organizations

When it comes to building relationships, discovering passions and making the most out of your time at The Ohio State University, the best thing you can do is get involved with student organizations on campus.

We know that it has been difficult to make connections this year due to COVID-19, so we collaborated with four of our nursing student organizations– NSPIRE, Buckeye Men in Nursing, Nursing Students of Color and Nurses for Sexual and Reproductive Health– to create informational videos so you can learn more about each organization and how to get involved.
