Chapters Make a Difference

Tagutanazvo, Oslinah

“I gained knowledge on facilitating critical thinking in students, simulation, action research in nursing education, grant writing and grants available, globalization as it relates to health issues, managing a chapter including motivating members and how to sustain membership. I will utilize every opportunity in meetings to share with students, colleagues and practicing nurses and midwives the knowledge I gained. I would like to acknowledge and thank the Delta Theta Chapter Giving Circle for facilitating my attendance.”

Chapter Giving Circle

A giving circle is a group of individuals who pool their charitable donations and collectively decide where to grant the money in order to make a more significant philanthropic impact.

The Delta Theta Chapter group is wonderful story of success. Since it began in 2011, this giving circle has supported seven members from India, Mexico, Pakistan, the Philippines, and Swaziland to attend the biennial convention or research congress.
