Help meet and support the needs of nursing students at Orvis

In a 2020 climate survey completed by the students of University of Nevada, Reno, it was brought to our attention that the Nursing students of Orvis had ranked third highest in food insecurity. As an organization, OSNA recognized the need to provide and support our students in whatever way we can. This called us to action to formulate a food and supply pantry that would allow our organization to provide food and supplies that are needed to meet the well-being of our student community. We are currently seeking funding and donations for the OSNA food pantry.

OSNA students have access to our food pantry via an anonymous survey in their web campus OSNA course shell. This helps to protect the identity of every student in assuring their information remains completely anonymous. We are then able to access our nursing lounge lockers where we place the supplies requested by the students to pick up as they need it. 

If you are interested in donations to our efforts, we ask that you please contact the OSNA President or faculty advisor Jasen R Brooks, MSN, RN, WCC, CNL.

*A portion of the funds donated to the OSNA food and supply pantry will be donated to Pack Provisions in support of their effort.
