Beta Zeta at - Large Welcome from our Chapter President

Mary Ellen Burke, DNP, MSN, RN, CNM CNE

Welcome to the Beta Zeta at-Large Chapter of Sigma.  I am Mary Ellen Burke the 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 52nd chapter to form in 1972 and it now includes American International College, Elms College, The University of Massachusetts Amherst, and Westfield State University.  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 all our monthly meetings and events are virtual.  A virtual 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.
