  • Induction 2018 by Janice M. Onieal

    ​What pride... what joy... watching the outstanding video montage of the March 2018 Induction of new members into the Kappa Eta Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing..... Seeing Dr. Patricia Joffee, Faculty Advisor, and Dr. Gloria Boseman, esteemed faculty member and Keynote Speaker..... seeing long time friends and colleagues in the photos, there to celebrate the new inductees as well as to celebrate the 30th anniversary of our Kappa Eta Chapter.... I couldn't be more proud.  Dr. Boseman is one of the most dynamic professors and speakers that I know.  She is so right, that "one size health care does not fit all"... that we are "lifelong learners"... and that the honor cords presented to the new members will let others know that they are "distinguished in this field".  Indeed they are.  Congratulations to the new members!  Congratulations to the officers and Board of Kappa Eta!  Congratulations to Kappa Eta on the 30th Anniversary!

    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.
