Georgia Southern student named legislative director for Georgia Association of Nursing Students

Georgia Southern University student Elizabeth Hartley will have the opportunity to be a voice for nursing students around the state after being named a legislative director for the Georgia Association of Nursing Students (GANS).

In her role, Hartley, a junior nursing student at Georgia Southern, will be responsible for submitting resolutions from the State Executive Board to the House of Delegates at GANS’ 66th Annual Convention, coordinating the annual Political Involvement Award, reviewing and making recommendations for changes in the bylaws and policies, and being familiar with parliamentary procedure and credentialing for the annual convention.

“Serving as the legislative director for GANS means that I can serve as a link for students not only at Georgia Southern but also students from around the state to connect with officials at the state or national level,” stated Hartley.

Prior to her current role, Hartley served as the assistant to the executive board and is an active member of the local Student Nurses’ Association chapter at Georgia Southern where she serves as the outreach coordinator.

GANS, the Georgia branch of the National Student Nurses’ Association, aims to provide resources and opportunities to nursing students to promote educational and professional development.

The School of Nursing is housed in the Waters College of Health Professions and is fully accredited by the Georgia Board of Nursing and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. For more information on nursing programs at Georgia Southern, visit
