On November 19, 2015, 86 new members were inducted into the MCCN's Rho Omicron Chapter during a festive and dynamic ceremony held in the MSB building at Mount Carmel West. The inductees consisted of students and nurses from the undergraduate program, RN-BSN program, graduate program and community leaders. All in attendance had the opportunity to listen to a powerful presentation given by MCCN Academic Dean Tara L. Spalla, PhD, RN. Dr. Spalla’s message to the newly inducted focused on leadership and that as new members beginning or continuing their journey within nursing to remember you are the leaders of change and the future. Dr. Spalla used STTI’s current President Dr. Hester Klopper’s call to action that focused on serving locally, transforming regionally and leading globally through four themes/roadmaps to leadership: servant leadership, connectedness, transformation and gratitude. Dr. Spalla encouraged the newly inducted to use their voice, embrace leadership opportunity, and inspire and lead others to contribute to the nursing profession. The message continued to center on STTI’s themes of love, honor, courage, connect, engage, grow, and advance, and she challenged the newly inducted to practice these important themes/roadmaps to leadership.
