Pan African Nursing Students and Alumni Association

Pan African Nursing Students and Alumni Association Logo

The Pan African Nursing Student and Alumni Association (PANSAA) provides a forum that addresses the academic and social concerns of Black and other minority Students enrolled in the UCLA School of Nursing. All students, alumni, friends, family and prospective students are welcome! The PANSAA seeks to enrich the community through service with the collaborative efforts of existing UCLA organizations and local agencies. The PANSAA has chosen A New Way of Life as their community service project. A New Way of Life is a transitional home for women who were formerly incarcerated and are now on parole. The home is located in Watts and most of the residents are minority women. A New Way of Life also houses women who have children. The PANSAA has sponsored workshops on Stress reduction and Relaxation, Facing Fears/Addressing Stigmas Associated with Being Incarcerated, and Promoted Awareness on Pap Smears, Breast Exams, and Proper nutrition and Exercise. They have also provided baskets to the mothers on Mother’s Day and Christmas gifts for the Moms to give to their children. The PANSAA have also held a used clothing and shoes drive and donated them to the Union Rescue Mission a homeless shelter located in downtown Los Angeles. As well as, volunteering at the LA Food Bank in downtown Los Angeles
