Hi students, consultants, faculty, and deans. My name is Sarah Thurlow and I am your new FNSA President for 2017-2018. I am so honored to serve this association because we are an active and growing organization of future nurses and nursing leaders. We are the next generation and from seeing all the talent, skills, and passion we have, the future of nursing is bright!
The generosity and the support that you all have shown demonstrate that we are committed to the profession of nursing and to the lives of our patients. I look forward to the day when I see that members of FNSA are leading the charge in the advancement of nursing. Now for a little bit about me. I am a BSN student at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton Florida, where I will graduate in May 2019. At the same time, I am also pursuing my Bachelors in Health Administration. After I graduate, I plan on working as a nurse gaining clinical experience for 2-3 before continuing my education and pursuing a DNP.
This year, I want to help take FNSA to the next level with my Board of Directors. We want to increase membership and engage our students deeper so that they can experience everything FNSA has to offer. My hope is to see nursing students discovering new passions and aspects of nursing that they have never experienced before. Whether that is the thrill of advocating for legislation at Advocacy Days or discovering a passion for leadership or community health.
It is my hope this year as your President that we can all unify together and have a productive and successful year. Let’s show the world why nurses are the most trusted but also the most valuable profession in the world! If you have any questions/comments/concerns, I am always only a phone call, text message, or email away. I wish you all the best in your studies.
