Phi Pi will be here!

The Phi Pi chapter has been asked to host an event at this Sigma Theta Tau event.  
This event is designed to help leaders in both academic and clinical settings develop, implement, and maintain strategies that will improve their organization's work environment. 
With the success of our SAFE- Stuffed Animals For Emergencies event at September's Sigma Leadership Succession, Sigma has asked Phi Pi to recreate this on a large scale for the Creating Healthy Work Environments event.  
Hundreds of plush animals will be stuffed in this Phi Pi workshop.  They will then be donated to a local charity (TBA) in person for a full experience of giving and helping children in need.

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!

Eliminating Healthcare Disparities: What Every Nurse Should Know
Webinar Link: nursetim.com/EliminatingHealthcareDisparities

Healthcare disparities have been at the forefront of healthcare policy since the publication of the Institute of Medicine report, Unequal Treatment. With the minority population projected to increase, eliminating healthcare disparities is imperative. This webinar will help nurses understand health inequalities and the causes of healthcare disparities in the US. This webinar will discuss implicit bias and ways to introduce this discussion in nursing education.


  • Define healthcare disparities.

  • Identify racial/ethnic disparities in access and quality of care.

  • Summarize how implicit bias can influence behaviors.
