Coming up on its 60th Anniversary, the National Student Nurses’ Association is preparing for a convention and reunion in Pittsburgh, PA this April.
The convention will celebrate past and present association members and honor nursing school students who have showed exemplary skills in their chosen trade.
The National Student Nurses’ Association’s convention will kick-off with an opening ceremony that recognizes scholarship recipients and presents keynote speakers of various industry officials. The theme is “Spanning the Distance: 60 Years of the Evolving Nurse”, an appropriate title for a convention held in a town known as The City of Bridges.
Nursing school students are expected to enjoy the event from its start date of April 11th to the closing day of the 15th. The first night of the convention will play witness to a party where participants are encouraged to dress appropriately for any decade of the association’s existence, which first began in 1952. Nursing schools and students will benefit from numerous speakers, classes, workshops, and seminars throughout the event.
The National Student Nurses’ Association recently posted on Twitter that they have a special goal to achieve before the April convention. Their membership number is so close to 60,000 that it would be a special treat if they could make it to the milestone by their anniversary. They recently tweeted about it, stating “We’re 2,000 members away from reaching 60K for our 60th Anniversary! Achieve official NSNA constituency status. Email at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Nursing schools are invited to sell fundraising items at the event with the reservation of an event table through the association. The convention is open to any student attending a nursing school, nursing school officials, or anyone working in the nursing industry. Registration deadline for the event is March 26th for online registrants and March 19th for mail-in registrants. Details are available at the NSNA website.
