Inaugural Lecture Series on Nursing Leadership is set for April
The first annual Adele Bemis Leadership Lecture Series will be held on Tuesday, April 28, at the Art Museum of South Texas. The lecture series is being launched to honor and recognize Adele Bemis, MSN, RN for her steadfast leadership in the nursing profession. Keynote speaker Marion E. Broome, PhD, RN, FAAN will present “Nursing Leadership for Uncertain Times.” Dr. Broome is the Dean and Vice-Chancellor for Nursing Affairs at Duke University and Associate Vice-President for Academic Nursing, Duke University Health System.
The lecture series was established to recognize Adele Bemis for the vision and leadership exhibited throughout her nursing career. Although in her 80s and a 1984 charter member of the local chapter, she still teaches part-time via online courses offered at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and is one of the most vibrant members in the local Eta Omicron Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau, International. Bemis has an unending support of life-long learning and is a champion of moving forward as the science and art of Nursing evolves.
To be held each Spring, the annual presentations will highlight both local and national nursing leaders to stimulate thoughtful discussions about nursing leadership trends and strategies within the Coastal Bend nursing community. The event is sponsored by the Eta Omicron Chapter of the international organization Sigma Theta Tau, International which is the Honor Society of Nursing. Local chapter members in the College of Nursing at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi worked for more than a year to create this lecture series.
On April 28, the evening begins at 6 p.m. with a welcome reception in the art gallery of the Johnson Building and is followed by the presentation in the HEB Auditorium of the museum located at 1902 N. Shoreline.
