About SNAP

SNAP is the School of Nursing’s main and oldest undergraduate student organization that is committed to creating programming and opportunities for nursing students. Come to our GBMs and other events for studying tips, career advice from SON faculty/classmates, tips on securing an externship, and more. Enjoy prizes from SNAP and learn more about how to become active in the School of Nursing.

SNAP prides itself on being an organization that helps nursing undergraduates find opportunities, resources, and platforms to develop leadership that will extend from the classroom, the hospital, and beyond.
