The Mentoring and Meeting Program was launched with our trip to Philadelphia, PA to the National Black Nurses Association's Annual Conference August 7-10, 2014.  Eight Lead Mentors (NCBNA members), 20 college students and 9 high school students (and chaperones) were in attendance as we traveled by coach bus the Philadelphia.  The students attended the conference plenary sessions, as well as daily educational workshops.  Students met many distinguished and accomplished nurses from across the U.S.  The purpose of the Mentoring and Meeting program is to expose high school and college level students, who are or will be pursuing a career in nursing, to an exceptional educational experience and networking opportunity at the National Black Nurses conference. The Mentoring program will include quarterly educational and leadership workshops.
