2013 President's Message

As we step into summer, 2013, CTSGNA marches on with continued commitment to the core mission of education. We have planned for State Meetings for the upcoming year which are being hosted throughout the region. Thank you in advance to those hospitals and free standing units who are sponsoring continuing education to CTSGNA members.


This year’s Beyond the Scope Program will be held the weekend of October 18 and 19 in Rocky Hill, at the Sheraton. We welcome Chair-person, Carolyn Checovetes- DiVenere, as she has already begun to lay down the foundation for the 21st Regional Program. We are fortunate to have her lead us into the planning of this major event, and would like to ask anyone who might be interested in joining this committee to contact her at: danand carolyn@comcast.net

The 5th Edition of the Core Curriculum is now available. Contact National SGNA for further information.

Connecticut is under review for bringing in the GI Nursing Review Course into Hartford. This would be a 12 hour live GI Specific Course for anyone interested in obtaining the contact hours, or desiring a jump start on preparing for the Certification Exam. We have 2 local National Speakers, Michelle Day and I. I am fortunate in being able to go forward with the next review course to be held in Baltimore, Maryland, at Johns Hopkins University Hospital on September 14 and 15.

For anyone interested, please remember that a quarterly scholarship, up to $250, is available throughout the year. Applications are on this web site.

Respectfully,

Christine Sarisley, MS APRN, CGRN
President CTSGNA
