WELCOME TO NU XI AT-LARGE CHAPTER

A chapter within Region One of Sigma, Nu Xi at-Large Chapter was chartered in 1992 and is affiliated with three university schools of nursing in the San Francisco East Bay Area: California State University East Bay, Holy Names University, and Samuel Merritt University. Celebrating its 25th Anniversary in 2017-18, Nu Xi at-Large took the bold step of incorporating as a 501c3 not-for-profit corporation in California on November 15, 2017. In recognition of its efforts to engage members and to collaborate with other Sigma Chapters, Nu Xi received its 11th Chapter Key Award in November 2023.

I'm from the Bay Area, California and I’ll be graduating from CSU East Bay, Hayward with my BSN in December of 2023. From a young age I always knew I wanted to build a life that revolves around caring for others. My passion grew as I assisted nurses with patient care, Rapid Response and Code Blue emergencies as an inpatient pharmacy technician since the age of 18. I chose nursing as a career because I hope to empower my community and promote positivity in a world where we always need more empathy and kindness. I am most passionate about Pediatric Critical Care and I hope to help families heal and grow stronger. I’m committed to lifelong learning and am so excited to grow my nursing career; this is only the beginning!

Continuing Education Webinars:

Nu Xi is continuing its longstanding collaboration with Omicron Delta and Phi Gamma Chapters of Sigma and Our Lady of Fatima University to serve the members of Sigma, particularly members of the sponsoring organizations by providing continuing education/professional development virtual programs offered via Zoom to enhance the professional education and competence of Sigma members.

In order to expand the benefits of the collaboration, a more permanent repository of recorded programs allowing access for up to two years has been developed. Sigma members can view the recordings and submit evaluations for credit without cost by visiting https://bit.ly/CEArchivePortal. The programs are updated so that the most recent 2 years of programming is available at any given time.

Chapter News

  • Volunteers Needed: Oakland Clinic

    The Order of Malta Clinic of Northern California recently (June 26, 2024) reopened after 6 months doubling its size and the number of uninsured or underinsured clients who can be seen free of charge. As a result, they are seeking current and retired nurses to volunteer at the clinic. Retired Nurses are a wonderful source of volunteers because of their extensive experience as well as time to volunteer. Volunteer duties include:

    • Help with intake and rooming patients on specialty care days and days when providers need more support than staff/volunteers available.
    • New patient pre-appointment visits to gather detailed and essential medical, family and social history, medication history, allergies, prior to the patient's first appointment with provider.
    • Assist with other patient contact projects, outreach and follow-up, capitalizing on nursing training and health care background and experience.

    The ideal is one volunteer shift a week, morning or afternoon, 8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. or 12:30 - 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. A weekly commitment helps the volunteer keep current with Clinic processes and EHR access.

    You do not need to have a current RN license. Liability coverage is held by the clinic.
