President's Message

Jane Nichols

Jane S. Nichols, MSN, WOCN

There is a lot of activity in FAET as we start 2015.

We will “Ride the Waves of Change” on March 6 and 7 in Cocoa Beach at our annual conference. The registration form is available on line for you to get your seat reserved.

The agenda has something for everyone.

There are four positions for officers in the organization that are up for election this year.

If you have ever thought of serving on the Board, now is the time to get your name in!

Information from the Nomination Committee is on the website and you can submit your name to the Nominations Committee. Positions up for election are Secretary, Treasurer, Chair of the Nominations committee and two committee members and the Director of Awards. If you would like to know what is involved in each position you can read the descrip-tion on the website or email the current person in the position. The email for all of the board members is listed on the website.

Finally, FAET is committed to education of current and future nurses pursuing a career in wound and ostomy care. Please see the application form for our scholarship on the website. Many nurses have taken advantage of this opportunity and we look forward to awarding scholarships again this year.

Happy New Year to Everyone!!
