About Us

What we do


Our mission is to promote, support and empower the full participation of Ontario nursing students as a significant voice within society. We speak out for nursing students and health. In collaboration with provincial stakeholders, through political action, professionalism and research, we ensure the best possible health care for now and the future.


We value human dignity, inclusivity, and diversity amongst our members. We are committed to empowering nursing students in leadership, visibility, and education.

Who we are

Our executive team consists of student leaders from nursing programs across Ontario. We are dedicated to improving the visibility of nursing students and advocating on their behalf on issues of health and health care.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the Nursing Students of Ontario Interest Group Executive Committee, elections are held in May each year. More information will be released closer to this time. If you are interested in running for a position, we welcome any questions and can be contacted by email (see below).
