Speakers Melissa Kay Gullo, Anna Menard, and Lindsey Waters with Alyssa Canino via Skype.
Traditionally the last meeting of the year for the Villanova chapter of the Student Nurses’ Association of Pennsylvania (SNAP) features young alumni in the Philadelphia area who speak to the group about the initial years after graduation. On April 24th that tradition was re-interpreted when panelists and CHOP nurses, Lindsey Waters (SNAP-Villanova President 2010), Melissa Kay Gullo (SNAP-Villanova 2010 Vice President), and Anna Menard (SNAP-Villanova President 2009) were joined by Alyssa Canino (Special Projects Chair 2010) who spoke via Skype. Alyssa, who is completing the Nurse Residency program in pediatrics at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville, TN, was live on the big screen in Driscoll Hall’s lecture hall, clear and present as if she were in the room. Now a “borderless” event, the talks were as valuable as ever for current students.
