 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.

Quinn Lacey PhD, RN
