Happy Birthdays

The other Saturday I managed to attend four birthday parties in one day. If that seems a little excessive, I will mention that three of the birthdays were at the same address. It was my nephew's and his aunt's and uncle's birthday, so my brother was having a barbecue. Plenty of sausage in buns there.
By an amazing coincidence, my friend Howard's party was only ten minutes drive away, so as the first party was winding down, I was able to nip over to the beginning of his party, where I stayed until one o' clock.
Boy was I full.

The award recognizes the co-winners – Penn and Excelsior – for success in recruiting and retaining male nurses, providing them with a nurturing educational setting, and informing faculty, students and the community about men’s ongoing contributions to the profession.
“We received the award from AAMN in recognition of our 25 percent enrollment of men in nursing – 20 percent of whom complete the program – and for creating an environment supportive to men in nursing,” said M. Bridget Nettleton, Ph.D., RN, dean of Excelsior’s School of Nursing.
Nettleton was asked to join AAMN’s board of directors – an honor she gladly accepted. “We are committed to educating competent professional nurses who are well-prepared to enter the nursing workforce, thus responding to our critical nursing shortage,” she said.
Excelsior, formerly known as Regents College, offers associate, bachelor’s and master’s degrees in nursing. It currently has an enrollment of more than 16,000 nursing students……. (more to article)
