Career Planning and Resume Writing for Nurses...Special Presentation during "Connecting, Collaborating and Caring"

During this time, we will delve into the crucial aspects of career planning and resume writing specifically tailored for nurses. We'll begin by highlighting the significance of career planning in nursing, exploring methods for assessing skills and interests, and setting SMART career goals. 

We'll then discuss various career paths available to nurses, emphasizing the importance of continuing education, professional development, and networking. Moving on to resume writing, we'll cover the essentials of crafting a compelling resume, including formatting, content, and customization for different job applications. We'll provide practical tips for showcasing achievements, formatting the resume professionally, and ensuring accuracy through proofreading and editing.

Happy Spring, Omicron Delta Members!

.

The new Sigma Organizational Call to Action is REPRESENT!

Within that word is the word “PRESENT”

My “PRESENT” to you is a very special gift that you can never see,

The reason it’s so special is it’s just for you from me. Whenever you are happy or even feeling blue, you only need to think of me, and know I think of you. You can never unwrap this “PRESENT”, it doesn’t come with ribbons or bows. Just close your eyes and think of all the LOVE, COURAGE, and HONOR that is “PRESENT” inside of YOU! 


Within SIGMA’S new Call to Action, set forth by the new President, Dr. Sandra Bibb, we are challenged to:

REFLECT and show the change we want to see by communicating a Caring Culture

RESPECT everyone by cultivating Cultural Humility, and

RESPOND to the demand for current and relevant approaches by championing Contemporary Practice.


The Omicron Delta Chapter is REPRESENTING excellence in nursing leadership, scholarship, and service after receiving our 9th Chapter Key Award and Regional Excellence Award! A big congratulations to our active members who make this recognition possible. As the saying goes, we are not “resting on our laurels!”


WE HAVE SOME BIG PLANS FOR THE COMING YEAR!

Mark your calendar for our 1st Annual Knowledge and Innovation Conference. We are partnering with the University of Phoenix College of Nursing for this free, virtual one-day event. Save the date...September 28, 2024

On behalf of the Omicron Delta Chapter, I wish you a wonderful Spring! Take time to Reflect on the past, Respect yourself and one another, and Respond to the promise of the future!
