Gamma Xi Chapter donates needed items to the Vera Loyd Presbyterian Family Services

The Annie B. Wells Campus is a children’s home located in Monticello, AR. 

 It is part of Vera Loyd Presbyterian Family Services and serves children as young as 6 who have been displaced due to neglect and abuse.  The campus offers a family style environment where children are grouped by age into smaller homes where they are cared for by house parents.  Currently there are 40 children living on the campus. Gamma Xi reached out to this home and was asked to provide toiletry items. Items were donated and assembled into a Halloween basket with candy to be delivered around Halloween. Gamma Xi is proud to assist organizations that serve these children.

The Future of Nursing-Campaign for Action: Nurses on Boards


Please go to the website link and read about the Nurses on Boards Coalition.

This is part of the overall Future of Nursing Campaign for Action in response to the IOM Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health report that has launched so much work being done to lead change in healthcare with nurses leading the charge.

Our AR Action Coalition has sent out surveys in the past to collect information about nurses on boards, but now this organization that is comprised of many of the national professional organizations is leading this work.

We hope you will take some time and complete the online effort to recognize you as a nurse as a member of a board-does not have to be health related. Nurses have impact in all areas of communities.
