Website of the Month is a prestigious STTI award. The Phi Mu website has been chosen above all other Chapter websites globally, which is a fantastic honour. 
Jennifer has ensured that we now have a contemporary look to our website and that the information members receive is up-to-date and relevant. We aim to build on this success for 2018, showcasing the work of Phi Mu to other STTI members and beyond.
We wish Jennifer all the best for her upcoming leave and look forward to her return later in the year.

  • Bournemouth University nurse students learn about GAPFON

    Desi Tait (Faculty Counsellor) and Janet Scammell (President) facilitated two interactive lectures for first year nursing students in early December entitled 'Nurses leading the way in global health'.  We explored the international healthcare context using the UN Sustainable Development Goals.  Drawing on the DAPFON model and the six professional issues identified, we then considered the role of nurses in advancing world health on the global stage and explored the role of Sigma in this endeavour.
