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!

Tristate Consortium 

The 2016 Sigma Theta Tau International Tristate Consortium was held on October 16th, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Chapters from the Tristate area gathered to celebrate the 30th year of this gathering. William Campbell EdD, RN was a keynote speaker who spoke about civil war nurses and how they pioneered today's profession. We were also fortunate to have STTI President, Cathy Catrambone PhD, RN, FAAN attend this year's event. She spoke about the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals and STTI's involvement. Beta Xi had two tables at this event full of members, officers, and interns.
