YES!!! YOU SHOULD GO!!! IT IS SO HELPFUL AND IS REALLY FUN!!!!
I went to two NSNA annual conventions, as a junior and senior. I also attended my state's SNA convention one year. I found them to be really helpful. My junior year, I learned about different nursing specialities. There are 2 1-hour break out sessions on Thurs/Fri/Sat. Lots to learn about. Awesome and very motivating daily speakers. If you're interested in grad school someday, there is a huge convention hall FILLED with different schools from all around the country, with representatives waiting to meet you and give you free stuff!! My senior year, I utilized the free resume/cover letter help, where professors of nursing read over my stuff and gave me advice. Both years, I took the mini-NCLEX prep class. I found it helpful as a junior to get my started thinking about what the NCLEX would be like. Senior year, it was a great review of material that I learned junior year liked Peds and Med/Surg, that I had forgotten. It's fun to go to a new city, take a few days off from school, and see new things. If other classmates go, you'll have a great opportunity to get to know them better. My classmates junior year became my "go-to" friends during senior year of nursing, NCLEX, job hunting, and now RN life. One year I presented a research poster. If you can afford it, both financially and to take time away from school, for sure go! It'll be great!
