Welcome to the Omega Gamma Chapter-Sigma Theta Tau International       
                    
Welcome to Capella University School of Nursing and Health Sciences Omega Gamma Chapter.  As President, I would like to provide you with an update of some of the exciting things that have been happening in our chapter. 

Omega Gamma is currently supporting the Haiti Nursing Foundation by sponsoring two students in earning their nursing degrees.  Our chapter also responded to the urgent need in Haiti after the recent earthquake sending funds to allow four nurses to go in to the earthquake area to bring basic food and medical supplies. 

We are so happy to announce that Omega Gamma is a recipient of the Regional Excellence Award for 2019-2021 Region 4. The Showcase of Regional Excellence (SRE) is designed to recognize the good work of chapters in relation to the Presidential Call to Action. Recognition is given at the regional level and spans the course of the biennium.

Recipients of the Showcase of Regional Excellence recognized during the 2019-2021 biennium will receive a certificate and have their name posted on the Sigma website. Recipients will also be recognized during regional meetings at the 46th Biennial Convention in 2021.   We are so excited to receive this prestigious award. 

Omega Gamma Chapter has also been recognized as a Chapter Giving Donor to the Sigma Theta Tau Foundation.  Our chapter's donation funds grants and programs that empower nurses around the world. Read more about this here: Sigma Foundation for Nursing Impact and Programs (sigmanursing.org).


Based on our member survey, we are offering free continuing education (C.E)webinars through the Nurse Tim webinar of the month on their Website. Every month you will receive an email with webinar log on information.  

We look forward to hearing from you throughout the year. If you would like to get involved in the chapter, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

Constance Hall

  • Invitations are on the Way!

    If you have received the notice from Capella that you have been invited to join Omega Gamma, the actual invitations went out today. If you don't receive an email in the next couple of days, check your SPAM or Junk files to be sure. This is a no ceremony induction, which means you will not have an online or F-2-F ceremony.  The October date is when the main office will be mailing out your certificates and membership card.

    You should also expect a purple envelope with your invitation via snail mail as well, but this will take longer. 

    Now, if you received a message but have been a member of Sigma,  you are only inducted once. That means that even if you have lapsed, you are free to rejoin and can either add Omega Gamma to your original chapter or switch to us. The easiest way to do this is to contact the Membership Staff at the Main Sigma Office 

    Here is a link to the FAQ for the website.

    If you received the first message but neither of the invites, please contact me.
