Phoenix, AZ Keynote speaker will be the Sigma President
Richard Ricciardi, PhD, CRNP, FAANP, FAAN, is the 33rd president of Sigma. Each president presents a call to action to help guide members and chapters as we strive to fulfill our mission. President Ricciardi call asks us to “infuse joy" to achieve Sigma's vision of global nursing excellence.
President Ricciardi's call asks us to infuse joy into all we do. All healthcare workers face challenges that can trigger burnout, such as staffing shortages, incivility or violence, lack of control in the workplace, barriers to education, and misaligned policies and regulations. Instead of viewing these issues as insurmountable and inevitable, he asks us to seize the opportunity to improve our experiences and work cultures.
As Sigma members, we are well-positioned to infuse joy into practice in clinical, administrative, research, and policy settings. President Ricciardi’s call to action highlights three essential elements – the ABCs – that promote joy: Awareness, Balance & Purpose, and Co-creation.
