May 2009 VNAA Nurses Meeting in San Antonio: A Great Success.

The 27th Annual Visiting Nurses Associations of America meeting was held in beautiful, historic San Antonio, TX May 14-16.  We were very pleased to participate at the meeting as exhibitors, and personally met several of the professional nurse executives in attendance, answering questions related to weighing and measuring of patients, and providing advice on best solutions to the often-challenging Visting Nurse specialization.

Speaking of solutions, the new version of our mobile stadiometer (height rod) was singled-out as being extremely helpful as a lightweight, portable height rod than can be dis-assembled easily in a few moments, and carried or stored in a very light tote tray.  The device is widely used in school settings, and of course in the visiting nurse community.

Most of the approximately 150 attendees at this year’s VNAA meeting are executive administrators and in leadership positions, representing numerous nursing associations from all parts of the U.S.   San Antonio provided an ideal setting for this annual event, which was held at the Marriott Rivercenter Hotel, immediately adjacent to the famous San Antonio Riverwalk district featuring a network of Venice-like canals and waterfront sidewalks that allow access to literally dozens of restaurants and entertainment venues.  The Alamo national monument and park  stands only a couple blocks away from the Riverwalk area, attracting hundreds of visitors every day, providing a quiet setting for enriching reflection on the historical events of 1836 that paved the way for Texas to join the Union as the 25th  state in  1845.  It’s all true:  Texan’s are extremely proud of the Alamo and of their state, as they should be!

We look forward to seeing our nurse friends at the VNAA meeting in 2010 and at other nursing conventions during the year!
