Nursing Student Society

The Nursing Student Society is a society that brings together all nursing students at the American University of Beirut. It creates opportunities for students to exercise individual responsibility and leadership. This Society has its own by-laws established by the nursing students and approved by the director and faculty of the Rafic Hariri School of Nursing. The objectives of the NSS are the following:

  • To serve as an organization through which matters pertaining to the welfare of the students and the School may be transacted.
  • To provide a channel for coordination of activities between the students and the faculty of the School, and with other students’ organizations, in particular the Student Council and the Students Affairs’ Office of the University.
  • To organize activities that promote a spirit of loyalty and fellowship among the student body.
  • To provide means for active participation in activities which foster the personal, professional and civic development of the students.
