Chapter News

  • November Newsletter

    Iota Nu at Large Newsletter for November
    Hello, Iota Nu at Large!
    We have had a very busy Fall season and I wanted to let you know about a few events, some past and some upcoming:
    UT Tyler hosted its Fall, 2016 Induction on October 25 in the UC Ballroom, with 55 inductees, including 3 nurse leaders. Custom cookies, complete with the Sigma Theta Tau logo were a delicious alternative to cake. Insert pic.
    Texas A&M University-Commerce will present their first induction of new members on Thursday, November 3 at 6:00pm at the Nursing Building on campus. The physical address is 2600 S Neal Street, Commerce, Tx. For more information, or to view a campus map and/or receive a parking pass, please contact Monica Tenhunen at Monica.Tenhunen@tamuc.edu This is sure to be a very special event. If anyone from Tyler would like to ride along with me to Commerce on that day, I will be leaving from UT Tyler at 3:30pm, so just let me know.
    The Board of Directors held the last meeting on October 20, with another scheduled for November 10. The November meeting will be open to all membership, so I hope you will consider joining us at 6:00pm at The Cascades Clubhouse Bellwood Dining Room. Meals will be available for purchase. No RSVP required.
    Our traditional Fall Dinner is scheduled for Tuesday evening, November 15 at the Potpourri House in Tyler at 6pm. We are honored to have a special guest, Debbie Waldrop, MSN, RN, CCRC presenting “Revealing the Mystery Behind Alpha-1”, approved for one CEU, which we offer free of charge to all Iota Nu at Large members. Don’t miss this special event! No RSVP required. Meals available for purchase.

  • Hello, Iota Nu at Large!!

    Hello, Iota Nu at Large!
    Your Board of Directors have met twice since the new officers were installed and we have a lot going on in the chapter that you will be interested in!
     You can impact your community by joining other nurses from your chapter in the Iota Nu Chapter at Large service project to honor STTI Founder's Day, celebrated on October 5th. Our president has given us this challenge:
    “Continue the tradition of celebrating STTI's annual Founders Day - 5th of October - with 90 minutes of service as a volunteer at organizations that align with your passion.” Cathy Catrambone, PhD, RN, FAAN
    For this year, Iota Nu at Large will be conducting a canned food drive for local food pantries. Since we are associated with several campuses, Tyler, Commerce, Marshall, Palestine, and Longview, each campus will hold their own drive. For questions about where to donate, please contact one of the following people: Gina Dudley-Palestine campus, Martha Dudley-ETBU, Carole McKenzie- TAMU-Commerce, Autumn Ladd or Danice Greer, Tyler campus. Email contacts are below:
    gdudley@uttyler.edu mdudley@etbu,edu Carole.McKenzie@tamuc.edu dgreer@uttyler.edu aladd@uttyler.edu

    If you are not able to join us, you can still participate by doing your own 90 minutes of service. Some suggestions for this include:
    • Volunteer at food bank.
    • Serve at a homeless shelter.
    • Participate in a neighborhood clean-up
    • Complete a walk/run for charity.
    • Serve as a mentor.
    Whatever you decide to do to commemorate the founding of STTI, we want to hear about it! So, please take pictures and contact one of your board members to have it uploaded into the STTI website!
     The next item you will want to know about is our Fall Dinner Meeting. This promises to be a fun and casual event to network and earn a free CEU (pending). Please save the date!
    November 15, 2016.
    More information to come! Questions?, please contact Gina Dudley, gdudley@uttyler.edu
