Penny Wars




Image result for pennies




Penny Wars is a convention tradition intended to inspire a little friendly competition among the schools. Each school will have a container associated with it. Every penny added to the container will give that school a point. However, here’s where the fun really kicks in: to make sure that your school is the winner, you can add any silver coin (nickels, dimes, quarters) to another school’s container to take away points. The school with the most points will receive half of the overall money raised in the Penny Wars!


Let your voice be heard...Write a Resolution.

What is a Resolution?

  • An official written position statement forming the basic policies and actions of the NSNA

  • Evidence-based call to action

  • Presented and adopted at the House Of Delegates at convention

Why Resolutions?

  • Opportunity to advocate for nursing students, the profession, and the community

  • Ability to voice matters of importance to NSNA, its members, constituent associations, nursing, and health needs of the public

  • Resolutions give students the ability to transform nursing issues into policy through political action

Deadline for Resolution submission: Friday, December 1, 2017.
