Give Green Day: Help Spartan Nursing Students Survive Financial Emergencies

We’re making tomorrow brighter for future Spartan Nurses by joining together on #GiveGreenDay, Tuesday, November 28. Help future Spartan Nurses survive a financial emergency that threatens the completion of their nursing program. This emergency fund may be the deciding factor in whether a student becomes a Spartan Nurse, has to postpone their education, or even drops out of MSU. The Nursing Student Emergency Fund truly is for the “if” in life.

On Tuesday, November 28, join us in this effort by making a gift online.
