Every year Penn Nursing sends about 20 students to the state convention and national convention. Through these conventions, students gain valuable leadership skills, professional development, networking activities, and more. Students can also choose to run on state and national boards.

2018, Student Nurses at Penn (SNAP) organization had twelve students, one alumni, one faculty member, and one admissions representative to the 66th annual Student Nurses’ Association of Pennsylvania (SNAP) Convention. The convention was hosted at the Hilton Harrisburg Hotel in the state capital of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. At the convention, nursing students from across the state were able to interact with each other and meet inspiring nursing leaders, such as those involved in research, emergency/urgent care, global health, innovation, and more! With the success of this convention, SNAP hopes to continue to be able to represent Penn Nursing at the national level.
In attendance 2018 were freshmen Chantalle Dupont, Charlotte Cecarelli, Angel Chan, Delaney Wilkinson; sophomores Cassidy Gallagher, Lindsay Krott, and Julia Ann Kennedy; juniors Gabrielle Ramos, Michelle Nigro, and Jessica Korducki; senior Cecilia Wang; accelerated student Tiffany Hsu; and Penn Nursing alumni and President’s Engagement Prize winner Marcus Henderson N’17.
