Period Packing Party - February 2023
A-State Student Nurses Association hosted a Period Packing Party to help end Period Poverty in Arkansas. Period Poverty is defined as a lack of access to menstrual products, hygiene and education. Local organizations were tasked by bringing donations to the event and packing bags of 8 tampons, 8 pads, and 8 panty liners. The bags were then taken to local homeless shelters, churches, health departments and other non profits. The A-State SNA is still accepting all donations of products including tampons, pads and panty liners as well as monetary donations. We have donated to several places within our community that can utilize these items including local schools, health departments, and women's centers.
ANSA State Convention - 2022
The ANSA State Convention was held in Hot Springs during September 2022. There were hundreds of nursing students in attendance, representing different nursing schools around the state of Arkansas. There were focus sessions and volunteer opportunities for students to participate in so they can broaden their nursing education.
Every year SNA hosts an event to welcome back nursing students to another year of college. this year our theme was "Everything Nursing" and we accepted donations for Microsociety, a local magnet school. We provided a meal to future/current nursing students and ended the event with a raffle featuring awesome prizes!
ANSA Convention - 2018
State Convention was held in Little Rock, Arkansas this year. We had numerous opportunities to listen to Focus sessions that had a wide array of nursing topics. We also had the chance to dissect a heart, which was such an enlightening experience. We can't wait for Nationals.
