My name is Shelly-Anne Baker. I am excited to work with other student nurse leaders. It’s amazing what we can accomplish when we put our minds together.
The role of membership director is especially important to me as I believe the involvement in a professional organization will benefit students immensely. You’re not alone! Not only do members of OSNA have the support of fellow students from schools across the state and nation, but we are so fortunate to have the support of the Oregon Nurses Association.
I am currently attending Oregon Health and Science University at the Portland Campus. I am hoping to pursue a career in the community. To me, there is nothing better than giving back to and supporting my local neighborhood. I spend most of my free time with my daughter and our friends.
This year, I hope to encourage other students to take full advantage of the benefits of this organization. In essence, OSNA is another venue to practice real world skills, I like to think of it as extracurricular clinicals! We only get to attend nursing school one once and we should make the most of it.
For those of you looking for ideas how to increase membership or participation levels at your own school, I’d be happy to talk with you to brainstorm ideas! You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
