The Carroll College Student Nurses’ Association is the college chapter for the state and national Student Nurses’ Association.
CCSNA brings students together to help further the growth of nursing, providing opportunities for education, experience, service and fellowship. Attendance at state and national conventions allows students to have an active voice in the future of nursing.

There were 19 nursing students and two community leaders inducted into Sigma Theta Tau International at an Induction ceremony and luncheon held on the Carroll College campus on Saturday, October 27, 2012. This was also the 30th anniversary of the Zeta Upsilon chapter and attendees, including several charter members, enjoyed a theatrical presentation by Pippa White, nationally known historian and entertainer.
Zeta Upsilon Chapter was formed through the joint efforts of the nursing faculty at Carroll College and Montana State University School of Nursing to encourage and recognize superior scholarship and/or leadership achievement in nursing at either the undergraduate or graduate level in the state of Montana.
In the Fall 2012, the Carroll Nursing Department presented national historian and performer Pippa White on the Carroll Campus. Ms. White performed Into Possession of Myself, a fascinating and surprising drama from the diaries, journals, and letters of Florence Nightingale, Clara Barton, and Dorthea Dix. They were much more than angels of mercy.
