VP of Communication April 2022

 In Regional Site 1

As we welcome the warmer weather into our area, we are also pleased to welcome new board members to Region 1.
The start of 2022 seemed to be challenging to the profession of nursing but as a whole profession we had and always will conquer the challenges that come our way.
Region 1 is flourishing with many projects that our members are putting together. We continue to offer our Nightingale lamp notecards for purchase (pack of 10 for $20). Please contact President Parker (taralynneparker71@gmail.com) if interested in purchasing notecards. This fundraiser assists our region in our philanthropic endeavors.
In February the Library of the Chathams in Chatham NJ had showcased our nursing traveling display.
Region 1 has been continuously participating in donating to various food pantries in our region counties.
The Region is pleased to participate in many events such as Hackettstown St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
Business Meetings:
We had a virtual meeting in January conducted on Zoom. For our March meeting Karen Kinsley and Wendy Prichett presented, “Verbal abuse in the outpatient setting and maintaining a safe work environment for nurses”. It was a wonderful presentation and important topic pertaining to nurse safety.
Upcoming Meetings:
We look forward to our upcoming meetings. On Saturday June 11th we will be hosting a meeting at a Sussex County Location from 11am- 1pm. We have planned our annual dinner meeting on Wednesday September 21st. More information to follow.
