The Graduate Nursing Council (GNC) is the official nursing graduate student organization recognized by Emory University.
Its purpose is to help promote the long-standing tradition of excellent nursing through leadership and unity of the graduate nursing students. Run by graduate students, the council is the voice of students in all MSN specialties for change and advocacy. This fun group sponsors academic lunch and learn sessions and social events including the Braves game, Shakespeare Tavern, and university-wide mixers. Members participate in charity events such as working with the migrant farm workers and their families in Moultrie, Georgia, as well as overseas projects such as donating fetal monitors to the Dominican Republic. The GNC informs graduate students about upcoming events and other announcements. It also advocates on behalf of graduate students when needed.
