About SNAP

Student Nurses at Penn is the biggest nursing student organization at the University of Pennsylvania. 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 like the annual convention each November, as well as events centering on leadership and policymaking. Every year, we present resolutions, students run for state board, scholarship winners, and more.
If you’d like to take advantage of pre-professional development trips like these, event registration info will be in weekly SON emails. Sign up for the listserv by emailing Clara Zheng at
