Volunteer Opportunities

You can make a great difference in the community by sharing a bit of your time.

This fall we are highlighting volunteer opportunities hosted by UCLA’s Graduate Nursing Student Association (GSNA):

UCLA’s Graduate Nursing Student Association (GSNA) is excited to announce their 2020 fall quarter community-partnered events:


  • UCLA Health blood drive – October 26, 2020 until the end of December 4, 2020

The UCLA Graduate Student Nursing Association (GSNA) will be hosting a blood drive starting next week October 26 (Week 4) until the end of Week 9 December 4 at UCLA's Blood & Platelet Center on campus and on Gayley avenue. 
Donors should call the UCLA Blood & Platelet Center at (310) 825-0888 (option 2) to schedule appointments in advance, say that they are donating as part of the GSNA blood drive, and scan the QR code in the center's reception area. 
All donors should visit https://www.uclahealth.org/gotblood/ to review the donor eligibility requirements. For a limited time all donations will be tested for COVID-19 antibodies for free. 
There is blood product shortage so every donation counts!

  • Union Rescue Mission’s Holiday Toy Drive! – December 1, 2020

  • GSNA $1000 Scholarship Fund – ongoing tax-exempt donations/fundraising


GSNA's mission as an organization is to create opportunities of learning, service, and sociality, and serve as a resource of advocacy and communication between UCLA School of Nursing graduate students, administration and community.
