YNP Happenings in Your Region! Pittsburgh Central PA Started in October 2014, our Central PA YNPs were our very first group. Our inaugural event was a winery tour at the Hershey Vineyard. There’s nothing better than meeting new friends over some wine! Throughout 2015, Central PA YNPs met for networking at local restaurants and hosted another wine tasting. Then as the temperature dropped, members attended a Hershey Bears ice hockey game at the Den. In December, Central PA held a coat drive for the Caring Cupboard in Palmyra. Members donated more than 40 new and gently-used coats for those in need. Our first Pittsburgh event was held last October at North Park Lounge in Cranberry for a Paint Nite. Members originally planned on painting the generic skyline called "Hot in the City," but members quickly decided to paint the Pittsburgh skyline instead! All enjoyed great food, drinks, and company. Our reserved seats sold out! Scranton Scranton YNPs held a Paint Nite in June at the Court Street Tavern. Turns out, nurses are good at tapping into their artistic side! York YNPs in York showed off their fashionable side with an ugly Christmas Party in December! Philadelphia Philadelphia YNPs kicked off their first event at the William Street Common Bar & Kitchen in August. A second event was held in October at the Ten Gallon Hat Winery for wine tasting and networking. Both events had excellent turnouts! Erie We kicked off our YNP Erie group last September at the Sheraton Erie Bayfront Hotel with a Bayfront Mixer. The evening allowed for networking with nurses from the area and learning more about PSNA—not to mention a beautiful waterfront view! Join Us This Month! Join the Philly YNPs and District 1 for the event Nursing: Past, Present, Future on February 19th at Penn Medicine, Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia—our nation’s first hospital founded in 1751!
