Mary Ellen Burke, DNP, MSN, RN, CNM

Welcome to the Beta Zeta at-Large Chapter of Sigma.  I am Mary Ellen Burke the newly elected president of this chapter and I would like to welcome all. As members you are part of a long tradition of nurses committed to excellence in scholarship and practice.  Sigma was founded in 1922 and now has over 135,000 active members in 530 chapters in over 90 countries around the world.  Our chapter was the 52ndchapter to form in 1972 and it now includes American International College, Elms College, The University of Massachusetts Amherst, and Westfield State University. We also welcome Baypath University who has begun the application process to become a member of our chapter. Being part of this organization offers great opportunities to develop scholarship, leadership skills and global networking with nurses all around the world.  We look forward to connecting our members to all of these opportunities. This year we will be having our monthly meetings both live and via teleconferencing.  A teleconference link to our meetings will be sent out so that more members may participate and be an active voice in our chapter.  Please stay connected and let us know how we can meet your needs to advance global nursing excellence.
