Capitol Hill: Step by Step

March 28, 2023


One in every 40 voters in the state of Pennsylvania is a registered nurse. It is more important than ever to vote as our country faces times of adversity and hardship. If you will be out of your home state or county it is critical you apply for a mail-in ballot or absentee ballot by the deadlines for your legislative district. Rules and regulations do change from state to state therefore make sure to pay close attention to information regarding your state.


Any student, group of students, or organization can author and submit a resolution to SNAP.  Only one resolution per chapter will be accepted each year.

The Student Nurses’ Association of Pennsylvania invites chapters to submit resolutions to be considered by the SNAP House of Delegates at the Annual Convention.  This year’s convention is being held at the Kalahari Resorts, November 16 – 18, 2022.  The House of Delegates will meet on Thursday and Friday.
