Students at a nursing school in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania were recently acknowledged for outstanding leadership at a Student Nurse conference through elections to senior offices in a student organization.
The Student Nurses’ Association of Pennsylvania (SNAP) announced the student winners at their convention earlier in November in Lancaster, according to a university publication.
The students hailed from Drexel University’s nursing school, a nationally acclaimed institution. Drexel’s college news resource recently reported that nursing school student Kayleigh Jackson became president of SNAP and Alexis Burns the Legislative Coordinator of the State Board of Directors of SNAP.
Kayleigh Jackson, the new SNAP President, is at the nursing school earning her Bachelors of Science in nursing and is a junior at Drexel.
Thanks to her leadership at the nursing school, Jackson is looking forward to meeting new people through SNAP. She told Drexel’s news resource that she realizes that her election provides some unique opportunities for her and the other students involved.
Alexis Burns, the new SNAP Legislative Coordinator, is a sophomore at Drexel and is in the nursing school earning her Bachelors of Science in nursing, as well. She will have the task of leading the organizations legislative agenda in Harrisburg, PA.
Other students at the nursing school were recognized for their achievements during the convention, as well. One student (the former SNAP President) won a scholarship and an excellence award. The former president, Stephanie Glatts, presided over the convention and led the election bringing Jackson into power. Much like any other legal organization, the organization dedicated to the interests of nursing schools used a voting delegate system to make their choices and held meetings to decide on things like bylaws and house resolution discussions.
The nursing school students at Drexel University make up a very large part of SNAP. With over 800 members, Drexel University’s chapter makes up the biggest in their state and is the largest single group participating in SNAP.
