VCNP Southwest Region Summer Social

VCNP SW Region wants to know more of our regional colleagues!!

At our last regional meeting, we decided to forego summer business meetings and opted for monthly social gatherings May through August.

I invite you and all of your APRN colleagues (VCNP and non-VCNP members) to join us on May 21, 2023, for a late spring afternoon of networking and getting to know each other at Davis Valley Winery and Distillery. Open from 12-5 on Sundays, the venue is located at 1127 Davis Valley Rd, Rural Retreat, VA (276-686-8855).

June, July, and August dates and locations are TBA. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. We are excited to learn more about you and the offerings our beautiful region has to offer!

We hope to meet as many of you, our APRN family this summer as possible. Help us learn more about our valuable nursing resources in the SW region. So, if you can join us for 1,2, or all 4 social gatherings we’d love to have you.

I hope to see you and your friends in person on Sunday, May 21!

Carole Everhart, DNP
