Pan African Nursing Students and Alumni Association
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! Vision: The Pan African Nursing Student and Alumni Association (PANSAA) is an organization that assists academic and social contexts to help develop and inspire enrolled and prospective nursing students to achieve health, wellness, and success in the UCLA School of Nursing. Mission: PANSAA seeks to enrich the community through service with the collaborative efforts of existing UCLA organizations and local agencies. Student members of PANSAA benefit from mentorship, networking, and guidance from the UCLA School of Nursing alums. PANSAA also assists in recruiting and retaining students of color in the School of Nursing. First-year students will also have the opportunity to meet their mentors. Services: PANSAA has chosen A New Way of Life as their community service project. A New Way of Life is a transitional home for formerly incarcerated women who are now on parole. The home is in Watts, and most residents are minority women. A New Way of Life also houses women who have children. 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. PANSAA also provides baskets to mothers on Mother’s Day and Christmas gifts to give their children. PANSAA also holds a used clothing and shoe drive and donates them to the Union Rescue Mission, a homeless shelter located in downtown Los Angeles, and volunteers at the LA Food Bank in downtown Los Angeles.
