and help get the messsage out to the Public regarding nursing conditions today!
Saturday May 5th, 2001 10AM
in Philadelphia, PA
City Hall to the Liberty Bell
Millennium Nurses March
Sponsored by: Delaware County Nurses Assoc. & Philadelphia District 1 PSNA
As Nurses, healthcare workers and citizens from across Pennsylvania rally:
A. To facilitate public awareness of the value of direct nursing care and our concerns regarding healthcare delivery today.
B. To encourage and support the education and recruitment of new nurses into the profession: 50% of current RN’s will retire in the next 10 to 15 year = 1.3 million nurses.
C. To increase visibility and accurate representation of nursing in the media.
Further info regarding the March or PSNA membership: 610-353-1495

for flyers or more info.
Nurses will march from City Hall east on Market Street to rally at Independence National Visitors Center Park, Third and Chestnut St, near the Liberty Bell (1 1/2 miles) in the AM.
We will have speakers discussing the Nursing Crisis and our Solutions, followed by tours of the Nursing Museums at Pennsylvania Hospital (Nation's first hospital) and University of Pennsylvania.
Speakers invited include national leaders, State Senators and Representatives, union representatives and staff nurses. This is OUR way of getting the message out about the concerns so many have discussed at our district meetings and on the nursing bulletin boards. Anyone willing to help, please contact us.
We hope as many persons in the tri-state area will join us to get our concerns out.
Thanks, and hope to meet you in Philly!
