  • Happy Birthday Sigma!

    On October 5th Sigma celebrated its 98th birthday and its founding principles – Love, Courage, and Honor.   During this unprecedented time, never have these words of our founders, six nursing students in Indiana, resonated more!   In ALL we do, nurses express love through our professional care of others, demonstrate courage in providing care to the most vulnerable, and honor those we serve each and every day.  Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Sigma has been there for ALL nurses -members and nonmembers – offering resources that support self-care, mindfulness, and ethical practices.  I encourage each of you, our faculty, to join Sigma.   Faculty membership in Sigma honors your commitment to professional practice, role models the importance of membership to our students, and provides you access to an international community of nurses – all of whom are experiencing this crisis.  To better understand the vision and mission of Sigma connect and empower nurses and “develop nurse leaders anywhere to improve healthcare everywhere,” I encourage you to read this inspirational article written by Sigma CEO, Dr. Elizabeth Madigan in Nursing Centered.  I hope Liz’s words underscore the value of Sigma in enhancing our professional development and inspires you to join our Psi Upsilon Chapter or engage in Sigma events and resources. 

    WE ARE SIGMA STRONG and want our WGU Psi Upsilon chapter to reach the milestone of 2020 members in 2020!!


         Founded in 1922 by six nursing students at what is now the Indiana University School of Nursing, Sigma has supported nurses around the globe to advance healthcare for almost 100 years!  Still going strong, Sigma has grown to almost 150,000 nurses in close to 100 countries.    
        Psi Upsilon honors the vision and mission of Sigma to develop nurse leaders through the transformative power of connection and empowerment.  As we "live" the President's Call to Action in all 50 states, members of our chapter know that INFUSING JOY in our professional work allows us to find meaning and contentment in our contribution improving healthcare!
         Enjoy a piece of your favorite birthday cake today in honor of this great organization :)
  • REMINDER- Celebrate Founders' DAY!

    Celebrate Founders’ Day and Continue the Tradition

    By Melody Parsons

    On October 5th, 1922 a small group of nurses came together in the Midwest United States to form a nursing honor society based on the themes of love, courage, and honor. This tiny circle has become Sigma International, an organization that brings together nurses from around the world with a focus on these same guiding values. In honor of Founders’ Day, Psi Upsilon is continuing the tradition of encouraging members to login to our community forum (https://psiupsilon.sigmanursing.org/home) to share their service and inspire each other! What are you doing in service to the community to share the Sigma values of love, courage, and honor? Please join the discussion on October 5th-9th 2020 and tell us about it!
