Upsilon Xi-at-Large is the Welsh Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI). The Chapter is currently affiliated with Swansea and Cardiff Universities and has members from across Wales, from the rest of the UK and even from other parts of the world. This website is the Chapter's means of communicating with its members. Chapter Leaders can post on the website, and all active members can read everything on the site. The links at the very bottom of the page will take you to the Virginia Henderson Library as well as other parts of the STTI site.

If you are just visiting our site then there are still lots of things you can look at and read. Why not have a browse and then think about joining STTI and the Chapter. Information on how to join is situated under the "OUR CHAPTER" tab.


The Chapter is delighted to announce the upcoming lecture by Dr. Estelle Codier titled:-

"The emotional intelligence of nurses: Research and implications for nursing"

Friday November 14th 13:00-14:30hrs

In person at Swansea University and via a VC link to the CoHHS in Carmarthen.

Estelle is an associate professor at the University of Hawaii on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. She was an early pioneer in the field of emotional intelligence in nursing. Her research was the first to demonstrate evidence for a correlation between measured emotional intelligence ability and both clinical performance and retention in clinical staff nurses.

She has published widely in this field and has lectured  extensively both in the US and internationally. 

Please check back in a few days for further details.

RCN Fellowship

At the Royal College of Nursing congress in June 2014 Colonel Alan Finnegan was made a Fellow of the RCN. RCN Fellowships are awarded to RCN members who are registered nurses in the UK and who have made an exceptional contribution to nursing or health care.

Alan is a clinical nurse, soldier and academic who has used his professional and academic profile to develop and advance army nursing for the past 25 years. As the first British armed forces defence professor of nursing, he provides authentic leadership in the military and civilian healthcare arena.

Alan has recently joined our Chapter, and we would all like to wish him many congratulations!
