Phi Pi Columbus Teams Up with Homefull

Dear Esteemed Phi Pi Members,

Phi Pi President Taryn Hill, teamed up with the Chamberlain College of Nursing Student Nurses Association for collection of items to support clients of Homefull. Homefull is a non-profit organization that helps homeless people find homes and jobs. The kits that were collected and provided to Homefull include important household items such as cleaning supplies, mops and brooms, hygiene supplies, and bedding. The picture you see here is of boxes turned into collection devices that were made to look like homes. Please join me in thanking the CCN-NSNA for their hard work in completing this much needed project.

Nurses’ Day at the Statehouse, Columbus, Ohio Campus

Twenty five Collaborative Health students along with Phi Pi Chapter President, Dr. Taryn Hill, faculty members and Lab Specialists attended an interactive learning and dialogue session with Ohio legislators to discuss issues that are important to nursing in Ohio. Campus President, Dr. Judy Kimchi-Woods delivered a speech about the seamless educational progression that Chamberlain offers and announced Shine On: Nurses in Art exhibition initiative with the Columbus Museum of Art slated for 2015. Presentation topics included, mandatory nurse to patient rations, higher education in nursing, allowing Advance Practice Nurses to practice to the level of education and training, increasing penalty for violence against health care workers, and Medicaid and Medicare reimbursement for advanced practice nurses. This day allowed students and faculty the opportunity to learn about important advancements in legislation that impacts nursing practice. I encourage all of you to be aware of legislation in your state that affects the profession of nursing.

I have Regis College IRB approval and the study is confidential.

Phi Pi Chamberlain Student Sarah Turner Helps Kenyan Man

The generosity and ingenuity of one Phi Pi’s Chamberlain students changed the life of a man half a world away.

Sarah Turner, a student at the Phoenix campus, was participating in the International Nursing Service Project to Kenya in May. She met a man who had been hit by a truck. Unable to pay for medical treatment, he had been living with a broken femur for a full year. The procedure to correct the fracture cost $500 – far more than his family could afford.

Turner decided to launch a crowd sourcing initiative to raise the money from her Facebook friends. Within a few short days, the kindness of strangers had translated into enough money to repair the man’s broken femur and get him on a path to recovery.

For more about Sarah’s mission, click the link below and view “Giving Back Beyond Our Borders.”
