This year, Villanova's chapter of SNAP wrote a resolution to empower nursing students to vote. Our resolution was passed at state convention and will be presented at national convention in Orlando.  Nursing students as voters have great power.  The NSNA’s membership is over 60,000.  A goal of the resolution is to increase nursing students' awareness of the impact of their votes and to encourage nursing students to become aware of issues and candidates from national to local levels.  The resolution does not support any particular political candidate or party.

One in every 45 voters is a nurse. That number makes nurses a powerful force in elections. Nurses see firsthand the impact of health care on the patients, families and the healthcare profession. Preparing nursing students to be involved in public policy and to be active advocates for all patients starts with voting. Many nursing students have recently become of voting age and are not yet registered to vote.   SNAP-Villanova organized a voter registration information table in the student center, where students could come to start the voting application process and receive information about frequently asked questions. Through this table we helped numerous students start the registration process and answered questions about absentee ballots. Our information table effectively raised awareness about the importance of voting. This election year make sure your voice is heard! Register and vote!
