Alexa Greenstein, a junior in the nursing program, won the Student Nurse of the Year award at the recent Virginia Student Nurses Association Convention in Lynchburg.  Alexa has been both an active member and an officer of the JMU Nursing Student Association since her freshman year and is currently the Nuts and Bolts Officer.  She also contributes her time by serving as the Panhellenic Vice President of Scholarship.  Alexa has volunteered at both Rockingham Memorial Hospital locally and University Medical Center of Princeton in New Jersey as well as organizing James Madison University’s Greek tutor program.  In the summers she has volunteered at a special needs program as a teacher's aid and she has volunteered over a thousand hours working with Special Olympics, soup kitchens, Autism Foundation, Make-A-Wish Foundation, and the Extended School Year summer program. Further, she does not let these activities get in the way of her studies and is a National Collegiate Scholar.  Alexa is hoping to become either a critical care nurse or an emergency nurse after she graduates.
