This includes managing the website, the official email account and the Facebook group to ensure that undergraduate nursing students are kept in the loop in all things NUS. I also organize council meetings, liaise with ISoN faculty and administrators when needed, and eventually, when or if in-person activities resume, manage room bookings.

I also work closely with your Class Representatives to address any academic concerns that may arise throughout the year.
A little more about me: I'm a U3 BScN student originally from British Columbia. I am usually at 680 studying with a cup of coffee. I love going out for walks and meeting dogs along the way :).

A big bonjour/hi to all my fellow Nurses & soon to be Nurses!
My name is Jessica-Marie (easier to call me Jess/Jessie), and I am currently a BN1 U3 student.
I am so eager to be in a role as engaging as it is with all of you McGill Undergraduate body!
As VP Internal, I work in liaison with the coordinators for most social events such as Frosh, Science Games and Faculty Olympics. I ensure that Nursing is always represented in all these super exciting and fun events throughout the year! Being a role of liaison, I also work very closely to my fellow council members in order to keep up to date with all the latest information so I can inform you all of any upcoming events, important dates, or interesting day-to-day news going in and around McGill, whether it be educational and/or social events. Fun fact, I am the person behind the screen of the bi-weekly newsletters you receive from ‘Gossip Nurse’ which you receive via email.
My goal this year is to create a space of comfort, safety and excitement through transparency via communication throughout NUS. I am looking forward to meeting you all via our new ‘norm’ of the screens, and hopefully in person. Thank you for all you do in these times, and continue to stay positive, good luck with the upcoming year!
