NSNA President Announces Changes for the Board of Directors NSNA is thankful for your leadership , during these challenging times of the economic crisis and global health pandemic .
I regret to inform you that Luiz Dias , NSNA Vice President , and Nicholas Fullmer , NSNA Director , have both resigned their positions due to personal reasons .
As student leaders , both board members honored their commitments and worked in their respective roles with dedication to fulfill their NSNA obligations . We wish them well for the rest of the global pandemic and in their future endeavors and nursing careers .
At a Board of Directors meeting held virtually on January 20 , 2021 , Kyle Loose , NSNA Director , was appointed to the position of Vice President . With only two months and two weeks left in their terms of office , the two NSNA Director positions were left vacant , but the work required will continue with the support of NSNA staff and current Board members .
With gratitude , the Population and Health Committee , chaired by Mr . Diaz , will now be chaired by committee member , Jaleighya Townsend ; and the Ethics and Governance Committee , previously chaired by Mr . Fullmer , will now be chaired by committee member Nikule Abel .
