HPU Assistant Professors Joelle Phillips, DPN, RN, and Associate Professor Jessica Nishikawa, DNP, APRN, were recently honored at the Region 1 Leadership Award at the Sigma Biennial Convention, held on November 11-15, 2023, in San Antonio, Texas. According to Sigma’s website, this is their largest event that features plenary speakers, networking opportunities, and over 800 oral and poster presentations.
The international award is a recognition of HPU’s significant leadership in planning the Sigma Region 1 Conference, themed “Nurses as Adaptive Leaders for Healthy People and Healthy Planet.”
The acknowledgment was particularly meaningful as it is bestowed upon a select group of individuals, underscoring the impact of HPU’s contributions to the successful execution of the conference.
