Hi! I’m Emmy and I'm excited to be the President for the OSNA 2022-2023 Board! I'm from Honolulu, HI and currently a Junior Nursing Student at the University of Portland. Previously, I served as Secretary and Acting Media Director on the OSNA 2021-2022 Board and I absolutely loved it and wanted to take on more of a leadership role this year. In my free time, I love going to the beach, hanging out with friends, weightlifting, and trying out foodie places! I am hoping to become a Nurse Anesthetist DNP in the future.
Hello! My name is Sierra. I am a senior nursing student at Oregon Health & Science University on the La Grande campus. I am originally from La Grande, Oregon. I completed my prerequisites through Eastern Oregon University. Upon graduation, I aspire to work as a labor and delivery nurse. I plan to continue my education to become a certified nurse midwife. In my free time I enjoy being outdoors, improving my archery skills, and spending time with friends and family. I am honored and excited to be the Vice President of the Oregon Student Nurses Association. I look forward to being an advocate for all student nurses in Oregon!
Hey everyone, I am Taylor Carrington and I will be the incoming Treasurer for OSNA 2022-2023 term. I am a junior at Linfield University School of nursing and am so excited to start planning events to help other future nurses. I first learned about this opportunity through Linfield Student Nurses' Association where I am the Professional Development chair. I loved being able to plan events for my school such as resume/interview prep, getting in contact with nursing recruiters from local hospitals and getting public speakers to talk about some of the issues the LGBTQ+ community faces in healthcare. I am now excited to do these types of things on a larger scale and love getting involved in the community making connections with other nurses. My future plans in nursing are hopefully being able to work in the ER for a couple of years then getting my FNP.
