The Image of Nursing

What does “being a nurse” mean to you? Meet, greet, and eat with Pittsburgh RNs! Hear from accomplished nurse leaders and healthcare providers. Participate in self-reflective activities. Nurses have worked tirelessly as advocates, leaders, healers, & educators. And on March 28, we’re going to celebrate! Join us as we showcase achievements embodying the nursing profession. The PSNA Young Nurse Professionals (YNPs), Duquesne University Student Nurses Association, and Duquesne University School of Nursing Alumni Association present “The Image of Nursing: Past, Present & Future.”
