Fall 2021 Meet and Greet

Showcare of Regional Excellence Award

Welcome to Sigma Theta Tau, Beta Delta at-Large Chapter!


Whether you are a current member or someone that is considering membership, we welcome you. The opportunities to become involved, to grow and develop as leaders, and to contribute to the nursing profession are virtually endless.

Sigma has supported me through scholarships for my doctoral education.  This chapter has provided a multitude of networking opportunities and friendships that I treasure.  I have had the pleasure of attending conventions and conferences to represent our chapter and learn more about Sigma and its role in promoting nursing around the globe. Serving on different committees and holding officer positions has helped grow my knowledge in regards to leadership and delegation. 

Our chapter, along with the Sigma organization, is here to afford you some opportunities for involvement within the nursing community at the local, state, and global levels.  Your membership will be what you chose to make of it.  Everyone's experience is different depending on your goals and your involvement.  Please get involved with our chapter from the beginning.  

Dr. Ricciardi, our International President, calls for Sigma’s vision is to "infuse joy" to achieve Sigma's vision of global nursing excellence. 
The three elements to "infusing joy" include:
• Awareness
• Balance & Purpose
• Co-Creation

If you are a current member looking for ways to become connected, please feel free to contact me (see below). If you are a non-member and already a RN wishing to join Sigma, consider joining as a Nurse Leader. If you are a student who has been invited to Sigma, I encourage you to read this about one new member’s experience to help you make that decision: https://www.reflectionsonnursingleadership.org/features/more-features/if-you-receive-an-invitation-to-join-sigma-say-yes

Whether you are a member or non-member, come to our next meeting and get to know us. We look forward to meeting you!

Sincerely,
Kathy Smith DNP, RN
