The NSNA Annual Convention is held during the Spring and explores specialty nursing areas and various education workshops for nursing students. NSNA invites you and your colleagues to join us and get ready to network with nursing students from across the country, learn from top nursing leaders, prepare for your future profession, and have some fun.
It’s easy and fun to attend NSNA’s 69th Annual Convention virtually! You will have the opportunity to learn new skill sets and test taking strategies while attending multiple education sessions including a live NCLEX-RN Review. In the networking zone you will meet NSNA leaders including the Board of Directors, Nominating and Elections Committee, and the chair of the Resolutions Committee. The Annual Convention will be a place where you can network with students across the USA; gain skills to manage state and local chapters; master test taking skills while learning clinical judgement—and much, much more!
Virtual exhibits provide opportunities for you to meet with exhibitors from a variety of employment and academic settings, NCLEX vendors and publishers. Visit with poster presenters and even participate in a virtual yoga. Also, receive expert advice for career development including interview skills, resume building, and future education opportunities. A special program for faculty to earn contact hours is also planned.
No travel so no worries about flights, hotels and the cost of meals. Sit back and relax in your favorite chair and join in the excitement of learning new things and meeting new people. If you can’t participate in all of the activities, you will have access to all programs, exhibits, etc. by video recording, which you can watch at any time. Exhibits and programs will be accessible for three months post-convention. In addition, a new special benefit awaits you with the nursing passport—stay tuned for more information!
