Communication Committee

Please take a moment to look up our Sigma European Youtube channel and all the stellar recordings that we have there.


The Communications Committee is launching research on social media usage of nurses across Europe.

This is a descriptive-cross sectional study, and we plan to disseminate an on-line questionnaire to all the nurses who are members of Chapters in the European Region of Sigma Theta Tau organization.
Nurses who are not members of Sigma may also complete the questionnaire.
The questionnaire consists of the following sections:
a) socio-demographic and professional characteristics, b) social media use, c) patterns of learning and d) patterns of networking using social networks. Qualitative information will be collected using two open-ended questions.
Ethical approval has been granted by the Ashkelon Academic College, Israel.

We hope that this study will contribute to the body of knowledge about nurses’ use of social media and the most effective platforms to access nurses. Link to follow 

Our communications committee publishes a Sigma European Regional Newsletter four times a year.

Our Europe Region Communications Committee decided for a change to have a focus for each newsletter.  

 The focus for this newsletter is how students are supported across the Europe Region. Our aim is to increase student membership across Europe and this newsletter will hopefully give Chapters ideas about how to be innovative in that goal.

 There is also a timetable of opportunities and future events with links to register.


Read about all the happens in Europe, Internationally and Globally about our members. What are they doing, what have they accomplished and for all who are they.
