2nd Annual PADCNETC Conference, Drexel University, Philadelphia, Pa

I  was honored to be a guest of Drexel University College of Nursing and Health Professions for their 2nd Annual Pennsylvania/District of Columbia Nursing Education Technology Collaborative (PADCNETC) Conference, held at the Doubletree Hotel, Philadelphia, PA, May 14, 2010!

I was part of the Howard University Division of Nursing contingent that is in partnership with Drexel to facilitate faculty development in the newer technological strategies for nursing education, through a five year grant from HRSA!

As a part of the Howard University DON faculty this spring semester as a ‘practice teacher’, I was invited to join the conference by Associate Dean, Mary Hill, DSN, RN.  It was a great opportunity to hear about the efforts Drexel is making to update three nursing higher education institutions through this grant.  It was also a great opportunity to network!  Below is a photo of Dr. Hill during her speech.  Drs. Rocky Rockstraw and Linda Wilson are seated at the table next to her.

Drs. Linda Wilson and Leland ‘Rocky’ Rockstraw were excellent hosts for HUDON’s whirlwind 24-hour stay at the Doubletree Hotel, where we were luxuriously cared for!

Here are some of the HUDON faculty during dinner on May 13, 2010:
