SCOHS Nursing Honor Society Invites Sentara BSNs, Post-Grads to Join...
Knowledge, Scholarship, Service, Learning...
These words personify the nursing profession and characterize the nurses who take on the challenges of today's complex health care environment. Sentara College of Health Sciences Nursing Honor Society has been established, and is now actively seeking nurse leader members who will help create an environment that will support the values of professional nursing - knowledge, scholarship, service and learning.
The inaugural SCOHS Nursing Honor Society newsletter was sent to Sentara BSNs and post graduates to provide the information needed to pursue membership in SCOHS Nursing Honor Society. We are looking for founding members committed to making a difference in health, both locally and worldwide. Join us in our journey as we develop and grow into an honor society that epitomizes all that you value in nursing.

On March 14, 2012, the Chesapeake Bay Chapter of the Society of Invasive Cardiovascular Professionals held its inaugural meeting at Sentara College of Health Sciences thanks to Sentara College of Health Sciences’ Cardiovascular Technology Invasive and Cardiac Electrophysiology classes. This new chapter of SICP was created for the individuals that live in Eastern Virginia, Washington D.C., Maryland, and Northeast North Carolina. Thirty-five people attended this inaugural meeting, making it a big success!
The meeting featured presentations from Paul Mahoney, M.D. on Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement, Stacy Newman, Ph.D. from St. Jude on the LAPTOP study, and Allison Mayo from Medtronic on the Resolute Integrity stent that was recently FDA approved.
New leadership was also appointed: Chair – Megan Hunsinger, MS, RCIS, RCES; Chair-elect - Misty White, RCIS; Secretary - Leigh Miller, RCIS; and Treasurer – Marcus Sharp, RCIS, RCES (congrats to him for recently passing his RCES exam!)
Membership in the Chesapeake Bay Chapter of the Society of Invasive Cardiovascular Professionals will include invitations to educational opportunities from local and national experts, professional conferences, and dinner lectures. In addition, there will be opportunities to meet and speak with other colleagues from various hospitals around our community. If you are interested in joining this new chapter, please contact the national SICP office for more information.
