Hello Chapter Members,

     I hope that you are having a great month. Thank you so much to those of you who attended our September event. It was great to see so many new faces!

     Our October meeting is now open for registration on Nursing Network. We are going to be more strict this year and limit attendance only to those who sign up. If you sign up and your plans change, please edit your RSVP so that someone on the waiting list may attend. 

     It's not too late to register for Visioning Beyond the Basics, our annual Region 6 critical care symposium. 1-day registrations are available if you have work or other committments. 

     AACN is having an Instagram contest. Tag @exceptionalnurses and use #UnstoppableNurse to tell AACN what it means to YOU to be Unstoppable.
