Lambda Chi Chi
Chi Eta Phi Sorority is a professional organization of registered nurses and nursing students.
Aliene C. Ewell, RN organized the Sorority on October 16, 1932 with the assistance of 11 other courageous registered nurses. The charter chapter, Alpha, was organized at Freedman’s Hospital in Washington D.C. for two specific purposes: (1) elevating the plane of nursing and (2) increasing interest in the field of nursing. The graduate and undergraduate (Beta) chapters are grouped into five regions according to geographic areas. The chapters are located throughout the United States, District of Columbia and St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Island. Guided by the motto “Service for Humanity”, the Sorority has Programs focusing on health promotion/disease prevention, leadership development, mentoring, recruitment, retention and scholarship.
The Lambda Chi Chi Chapter was chartered on Saturday August 22, 2015 by 14 phenomenal women, who not only believed in the mission and vision of Chi Eta Phi Sorority, Inc. but embodied the very essence of “Service for Humanity.” Their dedication and passion will ensure that Chi eta Phy Sorority, Inc. remains an ever present force in the community for years to come.
Since Lambda Chi Chi’s chartering on August 22, 2015, we have worked tirelessly for
health equity and to increase access for the most vulnerable among us.
As registered nurses we possess not only a unique set of skills, but a spirit of service. We never shy away from an opportunity to provide health education and screenings, participate in public speaking engagements and to mentor aspiring and novice nurses.
I encourage you to learn more about our sorority, projects, and upcoming events; and
join us as a supporter or community partner.
