Induction Poster

Our Kappa Epsilon Nursing team for the Gilda's Club of West Michigan Westside Walk raised $890 in donations to support the organization in delivering free cancer and grief support to the community.  We also walked at least 100 minutes between Sept. 19 and Oct. 5 in service honoring Sigma's Founders Day.  A huge thank you to our team and our donors!

Join us for the 2021 Kappa Epsilon Spring Research Event "COVID-19 Pandemic: Infusing Joy Through Equity."  The event will take place virtually on Wednesday, March 17 from 6:30 - 8:30 pm.  The event will open with a keynote speaker addressing equity issues related to COVID-19, proceed to breakout sessions related to the impact of COVID-19 on Nursing, and conclude with a poster session.  CEU's are available for registered nurses.  Cost is free to everyone!  Students are encouraged to attend.
