Our Mission

The Student Nurses Organization (SNO) was established in 1977 by a group of nursing students who wanted to aid the nursing student's development as a healthcare professional and to become more active within the community. SNO is a constituent of the Delaware Student Nurses' Association and the National Student Nurses' Association, Inc.
