Beginning in Fall 2022, the Nursing Living Learning Community was developed to help you build community and connection while living and studying with other Nursing majors. Nursing school can be hard, but having your core group of friends that are on the same journey makes it much easier!

Why join the Nursing LLC?

In Nursing, you can thrive in an inclusive environment where faculty support the School's vision:  blending the art and science of nursing to prepare enlightened, compassionate professionals who will meet the diverse needs of the local and global communities. This particular LLC is focused on:

  • Full immersion in nursing culture and creating a sense of belonging from the time you begin at Radford University
  • Helping you Identify your individual needs for success in the pre-licensure Nursing  program and providing support and resources to meet those needs
  • Participation in Nursing academic/social events in partnership with the Student Nurses Organization (SNO) at Radford

If you enjoy your experience as a freshman and sophomore, you are eligible to continue the fun as a Resident Advisor (RA) in your junior and senior years to become a mentor to others!

To be a member of Radford University School of Nursing LLC you need to:

  • Be enrolled as a Nursing or Pre-Nursing major

Program Highlights, Activities and Events

Partnering with Student Nurse Organization (SNO) you get to engage in community outreach projects, mentoring programs, meet and network with nurses and other health care professionals from the region so they can share what they do and their expertise with you.  The School of Nursing faculty are involved in the LLC through programing and hands-on activities to develop your sense of what it means to be a nurse.  There will also be plenty of opportunities for social get-togethers with Nursing upper classmen to develop community and lifelong friendships. 

Examples of past events include:
