Student Nurses Association of Pennsylvania
National Student Nurses Association
The Eastern University SNAP chapter actively recruits all pre-licensure students to participate in service activities, fund raisers, student development, NCLEX RN preparation, and brown bag lunches with nurse experts.
Led by students, activities are structured to socialize the future nurses of the Tri-state region. Opportunities for networking are abundant as expert nursing professionals interact with the chapter.
Activities in 2008 included fund raising to support the pinning and dedication ceremony, Relay for Cancer, and participation in a health fair serving the Haitian American community.
Brown bag lunches are offered monthly as faculty and nurse specialists share their professional journeys with participants. Dr. Mary Anne Peters, the chair of Eastern's Department of Nursing spoke eloquently at a session on how she developed her passion for compassion. Similarly, Rose O'Rourke, assistant Skills Lab instructor shared her research and advocacy for the homeless and indigent.
