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!

Nurse Tim Webinar of the Month

October  ...Nursing Skills Lab Teaching Strategies: Learning and Assessment...  Fara Bowler, MS, APRN, ANP-C

Webinar Link: Nurse Tim Webinar for October This can be accessed with your email address and subscription code: phipi

With national initiatives for quality and safety in healthcare and nurse sensitive outcomes driving the nursing work force, today’s nurse is different than the nurse of a decade ago. Evidence-based practice, patient centered care, and informatics are just a few of the elements that we, as educators, need to develop in our students. This requires a teaching paradigm that is different than traditional models. During this webinar, the presenter will discuss effective methods for the lab setting that address the new nurse competencies; and share evaluation methods to identify learning beyond the skill.

  • State three safety content elements to introduce into nursing lab settings.
  • State three interactive models for teaching in the nursing lab setting.
  • State three evaluation methods to be used in the nursing lab setting.
