Students are encouraged to join the various student organizations on campus in order to
stimulate interests outside of the profession and to contribute to their personal growth. They are also encouraged to volunteer for committee service within college administration.

Its activities are professional and social in nature. It is open to all Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden students and registration is held in April and September. The SNA represents the entire nursing student body, and there is opportunity to participate in leadership positions and activities. The SNA constitution and bylaws are contained in the Student Handbook. A yearly nominal registration fee is required. Meetings are scheduled at least monthly. A faculty adviser(s) will be appointed by the associate dean for administrative affairs.
