As the 2017–2019 board of Upsilon Psi, we are honored and humbled to be part of an organization whose members are involved in “advancing world health and celebrating nursing excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service.” This is Sigma’s mission, and we are committed to working with our members to further that mission and the values of Sigma: love, courage, and honor.

I hope that you will contact us to share your ideas, questions, and comments by posting to the discussion forums on our Circle website:  http://upsilonpsi.nursingsociety.org/home

Together we will continue to build an even stronger organization with this global pursuit in mind.
