    The conference is hosted each year by a different school of nursing. This year, we are sponsored by Seaton Hall University in NJ. The conference was in San Francisco last year and will be in St. Louis next year. From Newark, NYC is easily accessible and groups of us will be going into the city at night. Come join us!

    I do love NYC! Maybe next year, when I'm actually a nurse ...

    This will undoubtedly be a great conference and I'd love to attend but seriously, $435? Maybe I'l just hang around outside and see if someone leaving the conference will give me their ticket . . .

    $435 I can literally drive to miami and take a five night cruise. I would live to go but its too cost prohibitive. Maybe when I get a rich husband one day.
