SNA-SC State Convention 2020

The Student Nurses' Association of South Carolina welcomes you to our 68th annual state convention, being held at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center in Columbia, SC on January 10-12, 2020.

We like to encourage everyone to consider writing a resolution. Resolutions are written statements that are the basis for policies and actions of the NSNA. This is another great opportunity to get involved at the state level and potentially the national level. Please view the PowerPoint going into detail about how to write a resolution for the SNA-SC state convention:
