To show their commitment to the nursing profession, members of The Independence Foundation, 16 nursing alumni associations in the Philadelphia area, and the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau's Nursing Committee of the Greater Philadelphia Health Care Congress, worked together to initiate a nursing-themed mural, which debuted during the 50th convention of the National Student Nurses Association, in Philadelphia, April 3 to 7. The Philadelphia-area nursing community teamed up to raise awareness of Philadelphia as a nursing center at a time when the nation faces a major nursing shortage.
