Theta-at-Large Simmons NP Nursing Students Go to Endicott for a Sigma Event!
On Tuesday, September 24th, five Theta-at-Large members from the Simmons NP Program attended a fellow Sigma event at Endicott College in Beverly, MA. Tressa Ellis, Emma Cadman, Urvi Patel, Anastasia McMillan, Jacquelyn Marchand, and Sarah Corbett first learned about Dr. Karen Daley in their introduction nursing course during their sophomore year! Two years later, enrolled in the 4+1 Family Nurse Practitioner Program, the students attended Dr. Daley’s presentation titled Compassionate Care: A Fundamental Imperative for Today's Changing Healthcare Environment.
The Sigma-sponsored event focused on the importance of providing compassionate care in the midst of all the rapid changes that nurses experience. Karen Daley, PhD, RN, FAAN, served from 2010 to 2014 as the president of the American Nurses Association; she is a past president of the ANA Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Center for Nursing and has served on the boards of ANA, the American Nurses Credentialing Center, and the ANA-PAC.
