The Student Nurses Association of Pennsylvania chapter from IUP took first place in the student nurse challenge at the Student Nurses Association of Pennsylvania annual convention.

The convention was held on November 17–19, 2010, in Lancaster, Pa. Over eight hundred nursing students from Pennsylvania were in attendance.

The student nurse challenge was held on the first day of the convention. Many schools of nursing entered a team of five students to compete against each other answering NCLEX questions. Elimination rounds occurred throughout the afternoon and evening.

The members of the winning team include senior IUP nursing students Courtney Stitzer, Rachel Brozewicz, Emily Balko, Natalie Avraham, and Britney Skedel.

Congratulations to the state champs!
