  • Founders Day 2017

    In October, members from Kappa Eta attended the 2017 NJ Consortium Founders Day Dinner.  This is a yearly event celebrating the organization of STTI in New Jersey.  In NJ, our STTI united as an “At large” chapter, to strengthen our relations with each other and distinguish our chapters in the organization.  The yearly event was held at the new Rutgers Club at the Rutgers Livingston Campus in New Brunswick.  Guest speaker, Lia van Rijswijk, DNP, RN, CWCN presented on the topic of Wound Care following the dinner.  Dr. Rijswijk holds a Doctorate in Nursing Practice from West Chester University and she is an expert in wound care and education.  She also serves as a consultant for improving clinical wound services.  Dr. Rijswijk spoke about the need for improved education in the area of wound management and wound care education in medicine and nursing.
