SNAP is a chapter of the National Student Nurses Association. NSNA registration is separate, and you can sign up for NSNA here. Only $45 a year secures you great opportunities to network, meet other nursing students, discounts on books and NCLX reviews, scholarships, and more! Our members have taken advantage of leadership opportunities at the state and national level, and have also presented resolutions at NSNA conventions.
The Student Nurses Association of Pennsylvania is the among the largest of NSNA state constituents, bringing together students from other reputable nursing programs in the state. Our chapter attends events such as the annual SNAP Convention each November, as well as other events centering on leadership and policymaking. Every year, we present resolutions, students run for state board, win scholarhips, and more.
