Capitol Hill Step by Step:  Tuesday, March 17, 2015

Capitol w flag

SNAP welcomes all SNAP members to this legislative program, Capitol Hill Step by Step is an inspiring learning experience about the political process, and nursing students have the opportunity to learn on location at our beautiful State Capitol Building in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

The learning objectives are that at the conclusion of the program the participant will be able to:

1. Describe how a bill becomes a law;
2. Describe the relationship of the political process to the nursing profession; and
3. List three actions that individual nursing students can take to help influence the outcome of legislation and rules and regulations.

Capitol Hill Step by Step is available at no charge for nursing students and/or faculty. All participants are on their own for lunch at any of the many restaurants near the Capitol. Tours of the historic Capitol Building will be part of the afternoon activities, with tours scheduled for 1:00 p.m., 1:30 p.m., 2:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. SNAP encourages all participants to learn who represents them in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and Senate and either contact them prior to the day for an appointment or stop by their office after the tour.
Contact your school’s SNAP chapter president, faculty advisor, or dean/director to inquire about signing up to attend for these events. Participants do not need to be members of SNAP. If you have any questions, please contact Cindy Shingler, SNAP Executive Director, at (717)671-7110 or email
