Walden University and SMYS: Partners in Education Announcement

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

waldenu_minitypeWalden University is pleased to partner with Show Me Your Stethoscope to meet the professional development needs of its members. Walden is committed to helping working adults continue their education so they can make even greater contributions in their organizations.

As a part of that commitment, we have extended a 10% tuition reduction for the life of the program to all SMYS members who enroll in any Walden bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral degree program in 2016. Additional quarterly grants and scholarships are available for nurses!

With more than 80 online degree programs at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels, Walden can help members develop the skills they need to grow in their roles and help the organization thrive. In fact, of the employers who responded to a 2013 survey, 72% told us that Walden graduates’ leadership skills have improved since attending Walden while 77% agreed that application of professional knowledge improved.

If you have any questions regarding this partnership and its benefits contact Alley Staffier at Alicia.staffier@waldenu.edu (508) 340-6264 or click here.

#nursestakeDC Support Staffing Safety Awareness!

The official #nursestakedc t-shirt. Show your unity and your concern for staffing and safety.

There’s only 3 DAYS LEFT to get your DC Rally t-shirt! Buy a Staffing Ratios Matter t-shirt—it starts conversations, it financially supports the event in D.C., and it’s a staggeringly awesome shirt. Especially on you.

About the t-shirt:

  • It’s on sale through March 28, 2016—3 DAYS LEFT TO GET YOURS!
  • It takes about two weeks for it to be delivered from the end of the sale period—Bonfire treats the fundraiser like one big order. You could expect the delivery to be around April 13th.
  • The shirts are sourced from well-known producers; they normally are of a cotton-poly blend. The specific shirt is chosen by Bonfire based on what they can bid out for a reasonable production price.
  • Available in unisex, women’s, youth, long-sleeve unisex and hoodie cuts!
  • The women’s shirts do run small—order up at least one size!

What you can do to support safe staffing, t-shirt or no t-shirt:

  • Tell your health care friends, teachers and students about how unsafe staffing levels increase the number of adverse patient events, up to and including death
  • Also mention that it can increase the number of workplace injuries
  • Invite them to join us in Washington on May 12, 2016
  • Or, attend a state capitol event on the same day
  • Share this press release with your colleagues, coworkers and friends: http://smysofficial.com/advocacy/safe-staffing/
