Congratulations to Carley Kane (@2018Ambassador) for being awarded the Phi Mu Chapter Scholarship! We are looking forward to supporting Carley's dream of creating a 'SCHOOLARSHIP' in collaboration with primary schools with the aim of enthusing 6-10 years old children to consider nursing as a career, but also learn about equity, teamwork, kindness, infection control among others.
Check Carley's thoughts on being awarded this scholarship:
"I am absolutely delighted to be welcomed onto the PhiMu chapter sigma scholarship, I am proud to be a nursing student and part of the nursing family, I adore our profession. This scholarship means so much to me, I look forward to meeting colleagues and learning more about leadership, education, and research within nursing. It is important to me to be the best advocate and nurse leader that I can be, I will enjoy learning with colleagues and working collaboratively to achieve excellence. Kindness, passion, sincerity, and integrity are qualities that I believe make a good leader, I am truly dedicated to nurturing those around me and hope to be a brilliant nurse role model. Collaborating with the team will be an honour, I feel incredibly lucky and will be extremely committed to the scholarship. Having left school with one GCSE as a young carer, I feel very privileged and humbled to be in a position of continued learning. I hope to inspire and demonstrate that, with passion, drive, and sincerity we can achieve our dreams. I strongly believe that we must value each other, connect, and engage with each other, be inclusive, kind, innovate and put our patients and people at the very heart of our practice. Positively influencing future outcomes is my aim, nursing is my true love, and I will embrace my time with the sigma team. I give my sincere thanks to the team for welcoming me."

NEW CALL TO ACTION
Our Sigma president, Ken Dion urges us to BE BOLD!
Our profession must actively collaborate with disciplines outside nursing and healthcare to influence decisions about our profession, populations, and the planet in three critical domains: economics, technology, and conservation.
As we move forward in a post-pandemic world, it remains our duty as a profession to advocate to abolish inequities within societies, healthcare systems, and even within our profession. Advocacy has always been central to nursing. But how do we focus our advocacy for the future? Taking stock of our past, the present, and potential futures can help us determine how to do that.
