It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Eta Iota chapter web site. We hope this is a way for you to learn about us as an organization and about our events. In addition, our Eta Iota Website will contain information about the timing and content of applications for our research awards. Chapter communications are also posted on the Circle. If you haven’t completed your profile, go to: http://thecircle.nursingsociety.org/Home/, click on My Profile and complete your profile. A link to the national office of Sigma Theta Tau International is also available where you may access information about membership, the benefits of membership and general information about Sigma Theta Tau International.
I am excited to be working with a dedicated and energetic board of directors. We are a group that is committed to continuing to build a strong chapter that is a mix of nurses from both the academic setting and from various practices in the community. We are especially eager to welcome nurses who are working in the community to apply for membership in Sigma Theta Tau's Eta Iota Chapter and to offer their names for election to offices within the chapter. Community leaders enrich the chapter through their induction and contributions to the scholarship and knowledge about the practical application of work in nursing.
I also invite chapter members to become more active in the chapter through participation in service and fundraising activities. If you have ideas of what you would like to see the chapter accomplish or areas in which you would like to volunteer, please send me an email. We really do find our work together satisfying as we plan and implement programs and activities to improve the state of nursing research and nursing knowledge. I hope to get to know many of you more personally and highlight the talents, ideas and good fellowship you bring to our organization. Together we can truly make a difference!
I look forward to seeing many of you at our upcoming programs.
