B 04 SPECIAL SESSION: Vision 2020 and Connecting: The Journey

Monday, July 11, 2011: 1:45 PM-3:00 PM
Description/Overview: This session will provide an overview of Vision 2020, a strategic planning document launched by Sigma Theta Tau, the International Honor Society of Nursing in 2007 as well as Connecting through Knowledge for Global Health, the Presidential Call for the 2009-2011 biennium. Four key goals will be discussed: 1) the need for the Honor Society and members to be “intentionally global,” 2) the need for the Honor Society to continue to build its knowledge resources, 3) the need to further develop the leadership skills of our membership, and 4) the need for greater emphasis on service as a means of achieving the mission and vision of the International Honor Society of Nursing. Strategies for achieving all of these goals will be discussed, including action plans which have already been initiated at the international level. In addition, participants will be encouraged to share their ideas regarding how best to accomplish these goals at the individual and chapter level.
Learner Objective #1: Discuss rationale for and components of Vision 2020.
Learner Objective #2: Identify and develop strategies that you and your chapter can undertake to be "intentionally global" and a thought leader in knowledge creation and leadership development.
