Student Nurses Association

The Student Nurses Association (SNA) is open to all students majoring in nursing. The SNA is a very important part of the nursing program by keeping students aware of changing trends in nursing and by increasing student awareness of the various aspects of nursing. Students are considered an active member of SNA as long as they attend half of all the meetings and half of all events. Students may participate in any of the three major committees within the SNA: fund-raising, community and social. In the past, members of SNA have organized clothing drives, held Easter egg hunts, participated in blood drives, sponsored guest speakers and assumed Board positions in the Student Nurses Association of PA. General business meetings are held monthly. Fund-raisers, community activities and social events are held throughout the semester.
