As PA is hosting this event, I'll be running around behind the scenes, assisting PA delegation. Hope to get to a few CE events.
Partying on South Street... only a few blocks away, I'm game.
Maybe Saturday night the best time, if you'll all in by then.
Chinatown starts the next block over from the Convention Center so you can go there. Our Reading Terminal Market ( fresh fruits, meat s, vegetables, giftware, spices + teas and foodstands) is next door.
The University of PA Nursing Museum is only a 10 minute drive away....would like for you to see it. Anyone interested in a tour there??
JT, I'll wear my Blue plaid outfit again.
Franklin Institute with it's OmniMax Theature 5 minutes away. We have The Philly Flash Shuttle right outside the convention doors to take you to many cultural stops...I'll get the cost, $2 or $3.00. Would you like for me to get the updated Phila. Visitors Guide sent to you so you can scope out what to sight see?
Let me know how I can help make visiting Philadelpia a treat!
Leave message or send PM.
P.S.: Atlantic City Casino's only 1 1/2 hr drive...my minivan holds 6 other passengers.

I would love to go to the convention. I'm an undergrad at the moment but graduate in May. Can I qualify for the undergrad rate if I sign up early?
I want to start off my nursing career on the right foot by getting involved.

Perfect! I can spot you a mile away!!! lol.
(you looked lovely)
Ive been to all the places you mentioned Karen but damned if I knew there was a SHUTTLE to take me to them. I WALKED to every single one of those things - in ONE DAY! And every museum on Museum Mile, just about every antique shop on Antique Row, Betsy Ross House & Independence Hall.
Living in NY, you just dont think to drive to anything. Didnt even realize how exhausting it was, cause I was with a very special gentleman, but I sure found out later when I couldnt even move. lol
The Nursing Museum is located in what was the very first hospital in this country. I liked the historic photos & thought they should have them change places with the MD portraits in the rotunda. My friend is also a nurse & he wouldnt give up until we found it because he had heard that they had stuff about the history of men in nursing. A very small display but interesting. We found it & he was happy but we had to go search down the bowels of the back halls to see all those wonderful historic pictures & items that should be prominently displayed. Instead, you are greeted in the center of the beautiful building by only the sagging, unsmiling faces of old MDs. lol

Awwwww... doesnt that just warm our hearts? Theres hope for the future after all. And youre from Minnesota too?? Maybe youll find Jenny on the plane headed to the same destination! Why not print out Karens info & put it up at the bulletin board at school & make it a "class trip"? I bet some of your educators are even coming.
Enjoy the events & welcome to nursing! Check out the website:
