Student Government Organization

All nursing students are members of the tuition-funded Cizik School of Nursing Student Government Organization (SGO). In addition to sponsoring events, activities, and volunteer opportunities, the SGO represents nursing students on the UTHealth Houston Student Intercouncil.

Through the SGO’s popular “Beyond the BSN” events, undergraduate students hear about real-world nursing from a Cizik School of Nursing alumni panel, learn about graduate degree programs from faculty, and meet hiring managers and nursing leaders from Houston-area hospitals.

Student Nurses’ Association 

The mission of the Cizik School of Nursing Student Nurses’ Association (SNA) is to promote professional nursing to students through community service, leadership opportunities, and exposure to current professional practice. Activities sponsored by the SNA include mock interviews and résumé reviews to prepare students for the working world.
