Candidate for Treasurer:  Tammy Bryant

Tammy BryantI am interested in becoming an officer with Phi Tau Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau so that I can continue to assist graduate nurses become more involved in their Local and National Organizations. It is time for nurses to share knowledge with others and not keep their research and data tucked away in a box. I want to influence others in getting out and being involved in the changes occurring in health care today. There is no other way, in my opinion, to introduce new nurses to the role of leadership or the opportunities to get involved in organizations than for one to serve. Thanks for the opportunity to serve as an officer.
