2017 Spring Induction

The Beta Xi Chapter held our Spring induction ceremony at the University of Delaware Courtyard Marriott on April 17, 2017. 38 students and 1 nurse leader were inducted in front of friends and family, School of Nursing faculty, and Beta Xi members. Our president, Dr. Jennifer Saylor, opened up the ceremony with a warm welcome and talked to the inductees about STTI’s history, mission, and values. We heard from the Senior Associate Dean of nursing and healthcare innovation at UD, Emily Hauenstein, PhD, LCP, MSN, FAAN who talked about how special STTI is and what an honor induction is. Our speaker was Bethany Hall-Long, UD School of Nursing professor and current Lt. Governor of Delaware. She spoke about the difference nursing can make in the community and how we all picked nursing for a special reason. Later, students were inducted into the Beta Xi chapter by receiving their certificates and purple cords. Each inductee was pinned and signed Beta Xi's purple book with their name and induction date. Congratulations to our new members! 


2016 Fall Induction  

On November 7, 2016, The Beta Xi Chapter held our Fall induction ceremony at the University of Delaware Courtyard Marriott. 15 students and 3 nurse leaders were inducted in front of friends and family, School of Nursing faculty, and Beta Xi members. Our president, Dr. Jennifer Saylor, opened up the ceremony with a warm welcome and talked to the inductees about STTI’s history, mission, and values. Dr. Saylor also introduced the Beta Xi chapter leaders and other committee members who contributed to the planning of the ceremony. During the ceremony inductees were called up by name to receive their certificates and were pinned to mark their official induction into STTI. All inductees signed Beta Xi’s purple book with their name and date of induction. Lastly, all members were draped with honor cords. Following the ceremony, we had two guest speakers, Karen Avino EdD, RN, AHN-BC, HWNC-BC and Margret McGrath Brown BSN, MSN, AHN-BC, HWNC-BC. Their presentation on "Simple Strategies for Inviting Self Care into your Life: Why? When? and How?" talked about stress relieving strategies and how to engage in mindful health. They taught the audience about mindful eating, guided imagery, and self-care strategies. This presentation was also live-streamed to New York University's Upsilon Chapter so they could also participate with us. Congratulations to our new members!
