Taking a Break

This year’s Annual Meeting of the Virginia Council of Nurse Pracitioners is being held at the Hyatt Regency in Reston, Virginia.  During one brief break period, I dashed outside to feel the warmth of the winter sun and to use the camera to photograph something besides NPs in the conference setting.

The Reston Town Center has an outdoor Ice Skating Pavilion and on this beautiful, 60 degree day, I was drawn to photograph this unique facility against the bright blue sky.


The strong lines of the human made structure against the natural clouds and trees provided a striking contrast.

When I finally directed my gaze downward, I had to smile at what I saw.

Refreshed and energized, I headed back inside to continue the work of the conference.

Celebrating 40 Years!!  Nurse Practitioners: Your Partners in a Healthier Tomorrow!


Day 4 – Good Morning From Williamsburg!

Almost 500 Nurse Practitioners have gathered in Williamsburg for the 2013 Virginia Council of Nurse Practitioners conference.  The conference is an opportunity for learning new concepts, gaining knowledge, and advocating for improved health care for all citizens.

It is TIME for transition and change in healthcare and to move away from the territoriality that is promoted by certain healthcare providers!

For now, a few quick pictures from the Williamsburg Lodge.
