"Student Nurse Dreamin':  In a Holistic State of Mind"

The 62nd Annual Student Nurses' Association of South Carolina State Convention will be held at the Embassy Suites and North Charleston Convention Center in Charleston, SC. Many exciting learning opportunities are scheduled to prepare you to become a leader in the field of Nursing. We will have NCLEX reviews, Penny Wars, Jeopardy, Operation, and much more!

Spirit Luncheon & Skit Competition

As future nurses we know we are supposed to give holistic care, but sometimes that can be very challenging. Do we know how? What is your interpretation of the holistic care side of nursing?  This year you will be asked to decorate your tables and come up with a three minute skit or digital short with your interpretation of holistic nursing care.
