Nurses 4 Nurses
Nurses 4 Nurses is a social group for nursing students. This group aims to help students, help each other with studying and social events. We also want to get involved in charity work with the idea of the group to start making a difference as a nurse, before we even graduate. Membership is only $5 and includes exclusive invites to social events and free BBQs for members. All money raised goes back into the group to assist with events, charities and annual scholarships for members.
