Going Global: A Vacation Alternative for Nurses

Tuesday, September 25, 2018   ...     7:00pm CDT

What are your next steps as a nurse?
For some it is a degree. For some it is a promotion. For some it is a new job all together. Regardless of where you are headed, there is something you can do professionally that will grow you as a nurse and make you stand out amongst your peers.

TAKE A VACATION. But not just any vacation, a vacation with a PURPOSE! 
When you take part in a Global Health Experience, you get to stand shoulder to shoulder with professionals from other cultures while meeting the needs of some of the poorest people on the planet. You get to make a difference while simultaneously boosting your career through growing your critical thinking and communication abilities. You get to develop yourself personally as you are challenged to humbly serve in a way that you never have before. In this session we will share with you what to expect when you TAKE A VACATION with a PURPOSE.
Learning Objectives:
1. Describe the value of a Global Health Experience to students and professionals. 
2. Analyze personal professional knowledge, skills, & attitudes that can be developed by taking part in a Global Health Experience.

SAFE Volunteer Program Kick Off

SAFE...Stuffed Animals for Emergencies 
Phi Pi is proud to announce the kick off of our new volunteer program.

At the recent Sigma Leadership Connection, leaders of Phi Pi worked together to stuff plush animals and then deliver them to Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis, IN.
This was very well received!
If any Phi Pi members have a children's hospital, fire department, homeless shelter, ... they would like to donate to, please connect with the Phi Pi admin at admin@phipi.org and we will help get you all set up.  Phi Pi will help you choose the animals you would like to create (similar to "Build a Bear"), pay for and ship them to you, and help with the donation arrangements.  
Let's make a difference to as many children in need as we can!  #phipiStrong  #phipiCares  #phipiSAFE


We are honored to share ...
