LORMAN — Nurses in the Miss-Lou will have the opportunity to advance their professional knowledge via Continuing Education Units to be offered by Alcorn State University School of Nursing, Tau Eta Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International, the Honors Society of Nursing and District 1 of the Mississippi Nurses Association.

These two nursing organizations are partnering to sponsor lunches with lectures for all Miss-Lou nurses.  In addition to the benefit of professional growth, attendees will have the opportunity to earn valuable CEUs.  Funding for the CEU application was made possible by a generous donation from Dr. Vikram Dulam, board certified cardiologist.

“We feel so honored to have the support of Dr. Dulam in our nursing education endeavor,” said Dr. Diane Blanchard, president of MNA, District 1. “His gift demonstrates his support of nursing education, and this gift gives back to the community as Miss-Lou nurses advance their professional development. We are truly grateful to Dr. Dulam for this generous gesture and support.”

As a result of Dr. Dulam’s donation, Sigma Theta Tau International, Tau Eta Chapter, and MNA, District 1, will be hosting the first of their luncheon/lecture series on Monday with Sarah Ware, RN, MS, as the keynote speaker.

Ware will be discussing international nursing as well as sharing highlights from her recent nursing trip to Honduras.

The luncheon will be at noon in the Nursing Auditorium at Alcorn State University School of Nursing. One CEU will be awarded for participation, and all Miss-Lou nurses are invited and encouraged to attend.
