Philadelphia

Philadelphia YNPs kicked off their first event at the William Street Common Bar & Kitchen in August 2015. A second event was held in October 2015 at the Ten Gallon Hat Winery for wine tasting and networking. Both events had excellent turnouts! In February 2016, the Philadelphia YNPs and District 1 hosted an event at Pennsylvania Hospital. Nurses and students had the opportunity to network and participate in a historical tour. Some of the highlights of the tour included the Gallery Pavilion painting, “Christ Healing the Sick in the Temple,” the Great Court, the Historic Library, and the Surgical Amphitheater. Pennsylvania Hospital Chief Nursing Officer, Mary Del Guidice, MSN, BS, RN, CENP, spoke with nurses about leadership and offered insight regarding her nursing career. Patricia Haynor, PhD, RN, NHA from Villanova University discussed the benefits of graduate school. On August 19, 2016, YNPs attended a networking luncheon at Bryn Mawr Hospital. At the event, attendees had the opportunity to participate in a Q&A with nurse leaders, including Main Line Health Senior VP & CNO Barbara Wadsworth and VP of Patient Care Service Marianne Harkin. They also learned about applications and benefits of aromatherapy and reiki for hospitalized patients.
