 Welcome to Epsilon Nu Chapter
I look forward to working with everyone on a new, active year in Epsilon Nu. I am filled with optimism about upcoming activities, sponsoring, volunteering, and trips that come along with being a Sigma member. I also want to remind all members that our mission is advancing world health and celebrating nursing excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service. Should you have any ideas on how to further our mission here at LSU Health--New Orleans, please do not hesitate to contact a board member, attend a Sigma meeting, or post a message right here on the Circle for Epsilon Nu members. We are looking for ideas to increase our visibility on campus. At Epsilon Nu, we are working hard for Sigma to be your global organization of choice for nursing. Visit this website frequently and watch for upcoming news concerning your chapter. 
Thank you.

Chapter News

  • Epsilon Nu At-Large Chapter

    Something’s been happening over the past year, and we’re ready to celebrate!! On December 16, 2020, Sigma Theta Tau International (Sigma) notified the Epsilon Nu chapter that our chapter amendment application was approved and we have achieved At-Large status. We are now officially the Epsilon Nu At-Large Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International! It is a proud moment for all of those involved in the application process, and it certainly helps us revitalize the Epsilon Nu charter. Expanding our present charter to include a practice setting such as University Medical Center New Orleans (UMC) and another institution of higher learning, LSU-Alexandria (LSU-A), will aid Epsilon Nu in furthering Sigma’s mission. Advancing world health and celebrating nursing excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service is Sigma’s mission. Nurses who demonstrate leadership and students who earn high academic achievements are invited once a year to join this prestigious nursing honor society. University Medical Center New Orleans and Louisiana State University-Alexandria are now a part of the Epsilon Nu At-Large Chapter.

    Overall, there are tremendous benefits of being an At-Large chapter, including:

    • Improved collaboration and formalized partnership between UMC and LSU-A
    • Greater collaboration in education, research, scholarship, and community service
    • Increased visibility of Sigma in the workplace
    • Engagement, satisfaction, and retention of clinical nurses

    We are so excited to embark on this new journey with UMC and LSU-A in promoting global nursing excellence through education, leadership, scholarship, and service. Our charter amendment/induction ceremony is scheduled for March 20, 2021. For more information, contact Dr. Aimme McCauley at 504-568-4145. Want to know more about Sigma? www.sigmanursing.org
