The federally funded SIUE School of Nursing's Student Nurse Achievement Program (SNAP) is designed to recruit racially, ethnically and culturally diverse high school graduates interested in pursuing a bachelor of science degree in nursing. Students are recruited from educationally underserved circumstances that limit opportunities for successful post-secondary education.
Students are our number one priority. Beginning in their freshman year, SNAP students receive faculty and peer support through mentorship programs, remediation and study groups. School of Nursing faculty advise and monitor student progress throughout the program, promoting academic and personal success.
Nursing Circle, the social/academic component of SNAP, allows students to plan and participate in social activities and community service opportunities throughout their time with the School of Nursing.

"I’ve always wanted to be a nurse because I love to take care of people. While working as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), I thought that I could do more for my patients if I had more power like a nurse. The resources that SNAP offers are helping me to develop that power."

"Having people to encourage you makes you successful; and those involved with SNAP do just that."

"After graduation I felt prepared to seek a job because SNAP motivated me to rise above the challenges that were in front of me and do what I needed to do in order to find a job. I learned to always strive for more."
