SNAI 69th Annual Convention

What's Your Why? Answer this question yourself and hear keynote speaker Nurse Blake weigh in on this timely-- and timeless-- question this fall!


Keynote speaker Nurse Blake is an internet-famous and hilariously-relatable nurse who is a social influencer, writer, public speaker, and who has been a paid contributor to publications including the New York Times.

There will be a meet-and-greet with Nurse Blake, more inspirational speakers, NCLEX review, Be the Match bone marrow donor registration drive, exhibitor's hall, raffle, awards, and prizes! 

There will be a delegate vote to elect the upcoming twelve SNAI Board of Directors for the 2018/2019 term! To run as a candidate or vote, you must be a member of the National Student Nurses Association (NSNA). Pre-slating is preferable, but you can also slate the day of the conference.

The conference will take place at the University of Illinois at Chicago at the Student Center- East building. There will be discounted parking as well.
