I too had a great time and will be attending the convention in 2004. Which is a good thing too, because less travel, cheaper. Thank god, I didn't hear about the German and Russian mid-air crash before I got on the plane.
The Mummer's parade was fantastic. We learned that I blush very easily and sad to say that I cannot polka.
The education sessions were great, but I am bringing sweaters next year.
I agree with Bassbird that the HOD was very disappointing for several reasons.
It was great to meet the various nurses from all around the nation.
The demonstration during one of the plenary sessions was extremely interesting.
The average age I would guess to say 40 years old.
Great convention, expensive, but still a great learning experience.
See you all in 2004.
