Regions will have the opportunity to host a 45-minute session about the nursing culture of their Sigma global region. This is an immersion program to develop cultural literacy and facilitate international networking.
Sigma’s convention theme is Honor the Past, Remember the Present, Create the Future. Each region that participates should offer an interactive experience where attendees will be actively engaged in learning about nursing's past, present, and future from that region. This could include a celebration of what makes nursing unique or similar between the countries and cultures within the region or the major initiatives that have or are shaping nursing, etc.
The following sessions will take place at convention:
