ANCC Accreditation Feedback Line<br />

1-866-262-9730<br />

The Accreditation Program <strong>of</strong> the American Nurses Credentialing Center is interested in the<br />

opinions and perspectives <strong>of</strong> the participants in accredited continuing nursing education activities,<br />

particularly those perspectives related to the presence <strong>of</strong> perceived bias* in the continuing<br />

education. For this reason, we are now providing a toll free telephone number.<br />

Participants may access this number at any time to:<br />

-tell us <strong>of</strong> any noted bias or conflict <strong>of</strong> interest in the education<br />

-tell us <strong>of</strong> any concerns, compliments, or opinions<br />

-tell us <strong>of</strong> a great experience<br />

-tell us <strong>of</strong> an unpleasant experience<br />

-tell us your thoughts on the process<br />

Just call and tell us! 1-866-262-9730<br />

*Bias is defined as: preferential influence that causes a distortion <strong>of</strong> opinion or <strong>of</strong> facts. Commercial<br />

bias may occur when an educational activity promotes one or more product(s) (drugs, devices,<br />

services, s<strong>of</strong>tware, hardware etc.) This definition is not all inclusive and participants may use their<br />

own interpretation in deciding if a presentation is biased.<br />

NOTE: Statements <strong>of</strong> commercial support and /or conflict <strong>of</strong> interest disclosures do not represent<br />

bias. Such statements inform the learner that the provider has implemented a mechanism to identify<br />

and resolve all conflicts <strong>of</strong> interest prior to delivery <strong>of</strong> the educational material.<br />

I am a Nurse: Together we are ANA<br />

Cultural Covenant<br />

"As nurses, ANA members and elected/appointed <strong>of</strong>ficials, we need each other to create nursing's<br />

future.<br />

Our issues are big and require the best thinking <strong>of</strong> each and everyone <strong>of</strong> us.<br />

Therefore, we shall demonstrate through our behaviors and preparation our commitment to the<br />

spirit and purposes <strong>of</strong> ANA.<br />

We recognize that we are more alike than we are different, but we know that differences <strong>of</strong>ten lead<br />

up to better decisions.<br />

We believe that passion is positive and confrontation is counterproductive.<br />

We affirm the value <strong>of</strong> each person.<br />

We shall create an atmosphere <strong>of</strong> acceptance, demonstrating care for each other, as we do our<br />

patients.<br />

We shall listen to each other so each voice will feel heard.<br />

We shall respect each other's opinions.<br />

We shall be positive and open to new possibilities.<br />

We shall build on our past by focusing on our future.<br />

Through consideration, collaboration, compromise and consensus we can achieve our common<br />

goals. 1<br />

If not now, when?'''<br />

Rule 4.<br />

Rule 5.<br />

Rule 6.<br />

Rule 7.<br />

Rule 8.<br />

Rule 9.<br />

For admission to the annual meeting, to facilitate identification and seating, members<br />

shall be required to wear the <strong>of</strong>ficial name tag issued at registration.<br />

Members may not speak and debate more than twice to the same question or longer than<br />

three minutes, without permission granted by a two-thirds vote with debate. No member<br />

may speak more than once to a question if a member who has not spoken wishes to do<br />

so.<br />

Any member <strong>of</strong> SCNA may be granted the privilege <strong>of</strong> the floor.<br />

All main motions <strong>of</strong>fered by a member shall be in writing (on the forms provided), signed<br />

by the maker and the seconder, and shall be given directly to a Monitor for immediate<br />

forwarding to the chair as soon as the speaker has been recognized. Members making<br />

incidental motions not in writing will give name before making a motion.<br />

Business interrupted by a recess <strong>of</strong> the meeting shall be resumed at the point where it<br />

was interrupted at the end <strong>of</strong> the recess.<br />

Any substantive resolution forwarded to SCNA for consideration <strong>of</strong> the Reference<br />

Committee which was not approved for presentation, if introduced by an individual<br />

member, must receive a two-thirds vote <strong>of</strong> the <strong>Annual</strong> Meeting to reach the floor for<br />

consideration and a majority vote <strong>of</strong> the <strong>Annual</strong> Meeting to be adopted.<br />

Any substantive resolution not <strong>of</strong> emergency nature nor one previously forwarded to<br />

SCNA if introduced by an individual member, must receive a three-fourths vote <strong>of</strong> the<br />

<strong>Annual</strong> Meeting for consideration and a two-thirds vote <strong>of</strong> the <strong>Annual</strong> Meeting to be<br />

adopted.<br />

The members will act only on the resolves <strong>of</strong> the resolutions and the recommendations<br />

<strong>of</strong> reports. Questions <strong>of</strong> clarification about the intent and meaning <strong>of</strong> the resolves and<br />

recommendations will be handled according to parliamentary procedure.<br />

Notices for announcements to the <strong>Annual</strong> Meeting shall be in writing, signed by the<br />

person (or proper representative to the person) under whose authority the announcement<br />

is issued, and shall be sent to the desk <strong>of</strong> the recording secretary.<br />

Rule 10. The Board <strong>of</strong> Directors shall be authorized to approve the minutes <strong>of</strong> the <strong>Annual</strong> Meeting<br />

not later than the first regular meeting <strong>of</strong> the Board <strong>of</strong> Directors during 2022 Board year.<br />

Parliamentary procedure must not be viewed as a set <strong>of</strong> arbitrary rules. It should be considered as<br />

the application <strong>of</strong> common sense and logic in the conduct <strong>of</strong> a meeting. Compliance with this set <strong>of</strong><br />

rules serves to protect, and is directly related to, our jealously guarded ideal <strong>of</strong> democratic process.<br />

The great value <strong>of</strong> the democratic process is open and orderly discussion which results in intelligent<br />

compromise. When general consent is evidenced by a group, the importance <strong>of</strong> following<br />

parliamentary procedure becomes primarily that <strong>of</strong> maintaining the orderly conduct <strong>of</strong> a meeting.<br />

Democratic principles basic to the appropriate conduct <strong>of</strong> a meeting are as follows:<br />

1. Justice and courtesy to all.<br />

2. One thing at a time<br />

3. Rule <strong>of</strong> the majority<br />

4. Right <strong>of</strong> the minority to be heard.<br />

The rules contained in the latest edition <strong>of</strong> ROBERT’S RULES OF ORDER shall govern meetings <strong>of</strong><br />

this association in all cases to which they are applicable and in which they are not inconsistent with<br />

these bylaws.<br />


1. Recognition by the chair is, <strong>of</strong> course, the first step in presenting a motion.<br />

2. Time will be saved if members will think carefully before wording a motion so as not to<br />

make it too long, say what they really want and not include points <strong>of</strong> discussion in the<br />

motion.<br />

3. All motions, other than those <strong>of</strong> a personal nature, must be in writing.<br />

4. No business involving any kind <strong>of</strong> action should be conducted without a motion.<br />

5. All main motions are debatable.<br />

6. Debate begins after the motion is made.<br />

7. Debate should be limited to the motion before the assembly.<br />

8. Proposer <strong>of</strong> the motion may speak to it first.<br />

9. Proposer <strong>of</strong> the motion may not speak against his/her motion, but may vote against it.<br />

10. Address remarks through the presiding <strong>of</strong>ficer; do not speak directly to other members<br />

during debate.<br />

11. Avoid personalities. The motion is under discussion not the proposer.<br />

12. The presiding <strong>of</strong>ficer should not enter into debate and cannot close debate.<br />

13. Voting may be done by general consent (silence). Chair says, “If there is no objection, the<br />

report will be accepted as information.”<br />

14. The Chair votes only if his/her vote will change the result or break a tie. If his/her vote<br />

creates a tie, the motion is lost.<br />

Donna Jean Moss<br />

Donna Jean Moss, 91, <strong>of</strong> Warner Robins, GA, previously <strong>of</strong> West Columbia,<br />

SC, passed away May 6, <strong>2021</strong>. Born in Davenport, WA on Oct. 20, 1929, she was<br />

the oldest <strong>of</strong> three children to the late Eugene and Sada Chrisman Moss. Her<br />

childhood was spent in Lincolnton, GA and Greenwood, SC. Donna graduated<br />

from Greenwood High School in 1947. She received her Diploma in Nursing from<br />

Anderson Hospital School <strong>of</strong> Nursing (Anderson, SC) in 1950, her BS in Nursing<br />

at Emory University in 1957, and her Masters in Nursing from the University <strong>of</strong><br />

Alabama in 1962. She was a nurse during a time when R.N.s were permitted to be focused on<br />

patient care and could use their pr<strong>of</strong>essional judgement. Donna always said she was a nurse “before<br />

plastic”. She worked at Anderson Memorial Hospital from 1950-1954 and was on the faculty at the<br />

school <strong>of</strong> nursing 1957-1963. She was an instructor at Lander College (1963-1966) in Greenwood,<br />

SC. Donna’s final pr<strong>of</strong>essional years were spent as Assistant/Associate Pr<strong>of</strong>essor at the University <strong>of</strong><br />

<strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> College <strong>of</strong> Nursing (1966-1990) in Columbia, SC. She chaired the Associate Degree<br />

Program in Nursing 1969-1984. She <strong>of</strong>ten spoke <strong>of</strong> her students and maternity patients from over<br />

the years. She was a member <strong>of</strong> the American Nurses Association, National League for Nursing, and<br />

Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society for Nursing.<br />

Donna taught us by example to take care <strong>of</strong> our families, to do our jobs well, to pay our bills<br />

and not use credit, and to help others along the way. She cared for both her parents in her home,<br />

with help from her brother and sister-in-law. As with many <strong>of</strong> the Greatest Generation, being<br />

uncomfortable or inconvenienced was not a crisis to her. She was a poor country girl that worked<br />

her way up but never forgot her roots. She was an accomplished seamstress and enjoyed reading<br />

and following baseball. She was a loyal Atlanta Braves fan from the day they moved to Atlanta. She<br />

was a contented person, <strong>of</strong>ten commenting that she had never been bored a day in her life.<br />

The last few years <strong>of</strong> her life she lived with her niece in Warner Robins, GA. She was cared for by<br />

people who loved her, and she continued to amaze anyone around her.<br />

Donna is survived by her sister-in-law, Bessie Moss (Cayce, SC), brother-in-law, Dave Anthony<br />

(Warner Robins, GA); nieces, Pamela Anthony (Warner Robins, GA), Michele Dunker (Bennett, CO),<br />

Dorothy Moss (Rock Hill, SC), Susan Morris (Cayce, SC), Janet Morris (Cayce, SC), Lynn Wilbanks<br />

(Cayce, SC); nephews, Pete Wilbanks (Cayce, SC), Morris Davis (Cayce, SC), and Randy Moss<br />

(Cayce, SC).<br />

In addition to her parents, Donna was preceded in death by her brother, Ernest "Bud" Moss and<br />

sister, Loree Moss Anthony.<br />

Lexington Medical Center in Labor & Delivery and then went into private practice with Dr. Phillip<br />

Levin at Midland’s OBGYN. Mrs. Ellen loved every patient and their babies as her own. She was<br />

loved by all who knew her and will be missed dearly. Nana Ellen is survived by her beloved children,<br />

Angela Patnaude, Andy Riddle (Jackie), and Tori Riddle; her grandchildren, Rachel Cohn (Robert),<br />

Bruce Patnaude, and Kelly Cox (Jarret); and her great-grandchildren, whom she loved more than<br />

her own children most days, Josie Cox, Sadie Cohn, Claudia-Joy Shaw, Stella Cohn, and Sebastian<br />

Shaw. She is also survived by her nieces and nephews, Kendrea Knight, Kenzie Shaw (Aaron),<br />

Cla Knight, and Allison McMahan. She is also survived by her brother, Ken Knight (Deanne) and<br />

The mission <strong>of</strong> the <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> Nurses Association is to represent all <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> registered<br />

nurses in a membership organization to promote and advocate the role <strong>of</strong> the registered nurse to<br />

improve health for all. – 2017<br />


Nurses advancing our pr<strong>of</strong>ession to improve health for all. – 2016<br />


1. SCNA believes that nursing is a pr<strong>of</strong>essional discipline and an essential service in meeting<br />

the health care needs <strong>of</strong> patients as individuals, groups, or communities. In support <strong>of</strong> this<br />

philosophy:<br />

2. Nursing practice for registered nurses is defined in the nurse practice act <strong>of</strong> the State <strong>of</strong><br />

<strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> as “the performance <strong>of</strong> acts that involve assessment, analysis, intervention<br />

and evaluation. This practice requires specialized independent judgment and skill, and is<br />

based on knowledge and application <strong>of</strong> the principles <strong>of</strong> biophysical and social sciences;”<br />

3. Nurses practice independently or collaboratively in accordance with their education and<br />

clinical credentials;<br />

4. Nurses are encouraged to seek baccalaureate and higher degrees, to engage in lifelong<br />

learning and be employed according to role preparation;<br />

5. Critical thinking is an essential competency for registered nurses;<br />

6. Nurses are responsible to consumers for their practice and therefore must be responsive<br />

to individuals at all levels <strong>of</strong> wellness and from all cultural backgrounds;<br />

7. Nurses are responsible for the ethical practice <strong>of</strong> nursing according to the Code <strong>of</strong> Ethics<br />

for Nurses With Interpretive Statements, 2015;<br />

8. Nurses are engaged in activities to improve health care standards and health care<br />

accessibility for all people;<br />

9. All nursing practice includes the art <strong>of</strong> caring. Pr<strong>of</strong>essional nurses are providers, managers,<br />

coordinators, educators, administrators, researchers <strong>of</strong> care in all settings;<br />

10. “Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRN) means a registered nurse who is prepared<br />

for an advanced practice registered nursing role by virtue <strong>of</strong> additional knowledge and<br />

skills gained through an advanced formal education program <strong>of</strong> nursing in a specialty<br />

area that is approved by the Board <strong>of</strong> Nursing. The categories <strong>of</strong> APRN are the nurse<br />

practitioner (NP), certified nurse-midwife (CNM), clinical nurse specialist (CNS), and<br />

certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA). The NP, CNM, CNS, and CRNA hold a<br />

nursing doctorate, a post-nursing master’s certificate or a minimum <strong>of</strong> a master’s degree<br />

that includes advanced education composed <strong>of</strong> didactic and supervised clinical practice in<br />

a specific area <strong>of</strong> advanced practice registered nursing” (SC Nurse Practice Act);<br />


<strong>2021</strong> <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> Nurses Association<br />

11. Nurses are responsible for their own pr<strong>of</strong>essional development and competencies.<br />

Continuing education and other pr<strong>of</strong>essional activities enhance nursing practice and help<br />

to assure consumers <strong>of</strong> quality nursing care outcomes. Nurses are encouraged to obtain<br />

and maintain competence. “Competence is a dynamic concept, changing as the licensed<br />

nurse achieves a higher stage <strong>of</strong> development, responsibility, and accountability within<br />

the role. The role encompasses the possession and interrelation <strong>of</strong> essential knowledge,<br />

judgment, attitudes, values, skills and abilities which are varied and range in complexity”<br />

(SC Nurse Practice Act);<br />

12. Nurses assure competent care and advance the practice <strong>of</strong> nursing by promotion,<br />

dissemination and utilization <strong>of</strong> research findings;<br />

13. Nurses influence health policy through legislative and political action;<br />

14. Workplace advocacy issues are a vital concern for nurses and nursing;<br />

15. Marketing the pr<strong>of</strong>essional practice <strong>of</strong> nursing and the Pr<strong>of</strong>essional Association to the<br />

public, legislators, and nurses is a priority.<br />

I have been asked to remind all <strong>of</strong> you in attendance that various state and federal laws prohibit the<br />

exchange <strong>of</strong> information among competitors regarding matters pertaining to price, refusals to deal,<br />

market division, tying relationships and other topics which might infringe upon antitrust regulations,<br />

and that no such exchange or discussion will be tolerated during this meeting.<br />

These guidelines apply not only to the formal meeting sessions, but also to informal discussions<br />

during breaks, meals, or social gatherings.<br />

Thank you for your cooperation. President, SCNA<br />

SCNA President: Kelly Bouthillet<br />

<strong>2021</strong> <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> Nurses Association<br />

Number <strong>of</strong> BOD Meetings Attended: 2 <strong>of</strong> 2 to date<br />

<strong>2021</strong> Activities: Much like last year, <strong>2021</strong> began with a few new members joining the board <strong>of</strong><br />

directors. Early, we set our mission and vision to continue to move SCNA forward through advocacy<br />

and improving access to health care. However, once again, the global pandemic was clearly<br />

impacting much our plans and activities for the early part <strong>of</strong> the year. Despite the continuation <strong>of</strong><br />

COVID-19, SCNA leadership continued to work for the nurses <strong>of</strong> <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> through virtual<br />

means.<br />

In January, we held our Board <strong>of</strong> Directors meeting virtually, which served as both an operational<br />

meeting and orientation. I was able to share my vision with the members present and set the<br />

agenda for the coming year. This was followed up with our second Board <strong>of</strong> Directors meeting in the<br />

spring, which was also virtual. As part <strong>of</strong> the work <strong>of</strong> the Board <strong>of</strong> Directors, we completed together<br />

a review and revision <strong>of</strong> various guiding documents; my work included revising and updating the<br />

SCNA mission.<br />

Throughout the year, I have enjoyed communicating with numerous nurses that have reached<br />

sharing their current and past experiences working through this pandemic. As president, I have<br />

shared this feedback with our national leaders during various calls and conferences as nurses across<br />

the country are experiencing similar sentiments. I have continued to advocate for safe staffing,<br />

PPE and other critical polices that protect all nurses across all settings. I worked with legislators,<br />

including Senator Tom Davis, to ensure that COVID vaccines were accessible to all nurses and<br />

healthcare pr<strong>of</strong>essionals. As part <strong>of</strong> a tri-county coalition, we worked with DHEC to improve vaccine<br />

distribution and accessibility across the state.<br />

In support <strong>of</strong> continuing the Women’s Health and Children’s chapter, I met with members as they<br />

experienced a period <strong>of</strong> rebuilding this year.<br />

SCNA also partnered with the Midlands <strong>of</strong> <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> Black Nurses Association, Inc. to develop<br />

a webinar series titled “A Collaborative Approach to Addressing Racism in Nursing" which was held<br />

from March to June <strong>of</strong> this year. Both the President-elect and I had the privilege <strong>of</strong> working with<br />

various nursing partners in support <strong>of</strong> these important discussions.<br />

This past year, I also attended American Nurses Association (ANA) Leadership and Health Policy/<br />

GOVA web-calls in effort to stay updated on priority national nursing strategies and policies. I also<br />

served as one <strong>of</strong> the voting Representatives to the ANA’s General Membership Assembly held<br />

on June 18th, <strong>2021</strong>. With the President-elect, I participated in a Virtual Hill Day, a first <strong>of</strong> its kind,<br />

in which we advocated for Protecting Providers Everywhere in America (PPE in America) Act, The<br />

Creating Opportunities Now for Necessary and Effective Care Technologies (CONNECT) for Health<br />

Act and The Workplace Violence Prevention for Health Care and Social Service Workers Act.<br />

Since early spring, I have had the privilege to serve on the ANA APRN Task Force which is<br />

committed to promoting advanced practice nursing initiatives for all four APN roles.<br />


<strong>2021</strong> <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> Nurses Association<br />

Additionally, I have served as a representative on the Advisory Committee on Nursing Education<br />

(ACONE) and the Deans and Directors groups which are both focused on nursing education in<br />

<strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong>.<br />

SCNA President-Elect: Angela Dykes<br />

Number <strong>of</strong> BOD Meetings Attended:<br />

<strong>2021</strong> Activities: 2 <strong>of</strong> 2 to date<br />

As President-Elect, I served as the chair <strong>of</strong> the State Planning Team for the <strong>Annual</strong> SCNA<br />

Conference as well as participated in the State planning meetings to assist in planning the<br />

conference. This year I also served as a voting member <strong>of</strong> the ANA General Assembly. As a member<br />

<strong>of</strong> the Board, I participated in reviewing the SCNA bylaws. I also served as SCNA's representative<br />

on the <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> Nurses Foundation Board <strong>of</strong> Trustees.<br />

Finally, I represented SCNA and served as a Moderator for a webinar hosted by the Midlands BNA,<br />

“Addressing Implicit Bias in Nursing, A Solutions Based Approach.”<br />

Director, Seat 2: Rhona Williams<br />

<strong>2021</strong> <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> Nurses Association<br />

Number <strong>of</strong> BOD Meetings Attended: May and August <strong>2021</strong> Meetings (Newly elected as <strong>of</strong> April<br />

<strong>2021</strong>)<br />

<strong>2021</strong> Activities: I am excited to have been elected as the new Director Seat 2 for the <strong>South</strong><br />

<strong>Carolina</strong> Nurses Association, Board <strong>of</strong> Directors. During these first few months, I have been learning<br />

the duties and functions <strong>of</strong> this role and my responsibility to the SCNA Board <strong>of</strong> Directors, as well as<br />

attended required SCNA Board <strong>of</strong> Director meetings. One <strong>of</strong> the main goals <strong>of</strong> this seat is to help<br />

support SCNA efforts for multi-generational membership recruitment. In responding to that call,<br />

and with guidance from the SCNA bylaws, I have established the SCNA Membership Development<br />

Committee, inviting each chapter <strong>of</strong> SCNA to provide a member from their chapter to serve on this<br />

committee. The goal and purpose <strong>of</strong> this new committee is to help support membership needs<br />

as they arise from each <strong>of</strong> SCNA's chapters and help new members engage with our chapters. To<br />

begin this process, a new weekly email with new members will be sent to each <strong>of</strong> our SCNA Chapter<br />

Chairs, providing chapters an opportunity to reach out to new members who may be interested in<br />

joining their chapters. I look forward to working with the SCNA Board <strong>of</strong> Directors and I am honored<br />

to help serve the nurses <strong>of</strong> <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> over the next two years!<br />

Chair Commission on Policy / Legislation: Vacant<br />

Number <strong>of</strong> BOD Meetings Attended:<br />

<strong>2021</strong> Activities:<br />

Legislative Committee: Stephanie Burgess<br />

<strong>2021</strong> Activities: Reported by Wanda Crotwell<br />

The 124th session <strong>of</strong> the <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> General Assembly is scheduled to adjourn sine die for the<br />

year on Thursday, May 13. Although session will <strong>of</strong>ficially conclude for regular business on that day,<br />

the General Assembly will return later in May and throughout the month <strong>of</strong> June to complete work<br />

on the state’s annual budget. They will also reconvene in the fall for purposes <strong>of</strong> creating spending<br />

plans for federal relief dollars, as well as reapportionment.<br />

As the session winds down, two nursing bills have received final approval from both chambers and<br />

are, at the time <strong>of</strong> this writing, enrolled for ratification and headed to the Governor. S.503 by Sen.<br />

Brad Hutto allows Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) and Physician’s Assistants (PAs)<br />

to issue orders for home health services, further expanding the current scopes <strong>of</strong> practice for both<br />

pr<strong>of</strong>essions in <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> to be consistent with federal allowances through CMS. In addition,<br />

S.455 by Sen. Tom Davis establishes an additional category for temporary licensure for graduate<br />

nurses. Both bills will be positive steps in the state’s efforts to address the need for greater access to<br />

care for all <strong>South</strong> Carolinians.<br />

In addition, Sen. Tom Davis has also introduced S.712, which will establish a tuition loan<br />

reimbursement program for NPs, PAs and physicians who practice in the field <strong>of</strong> primary care for<br />

a required period <strong>of</strong> time in a rural or underserved area <strong>of</strong> the state. Work is underway to secure<br />

additional cosponsors and to introduce a House companion bill in hopes <strong>of</strong> having two vehicles<br />

capable <strong>of</strong> moving when the General Assembly reconvenes for regular session in January.<br />

Work is also underway on a temporary budget proviso that would allow those telemedicine services<br />

provided during the Covid-19 pandemic to continue until a final agreement can be reached on<br />

legislation that will make permanent changes to telemedicine allowances in <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong>.<br />


<strong>2021</strong> <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> Nurses Association<br />

S.571 by Senators Shealy, Hutto and Senn also passed this year and was signed by the Governor.<br />

The bill requires that providers who prescribe opioids for a patient must <strong>of</strong>fer a prescription for<br />

naloxone to those patients as well.<br />

S.639/H.3682 is a bill to allow for full independent practice for CRNAs. The senate bill had one<br />

hearing in the Senate that resulted in a motion to carry the bill over. The House bill had two<br />

subcommittee hearings in the House that resulted in a favorable report. The bill will now go to full<br />

House 3M Committee in January when the full session reconvenes.<br />

S.613/H.4296, a bill impacting the delegation <strong>of</strong> tasks to CMAs, has yet to receive a hearing but<br />

could possibly do so in January, or during the interim months should the committee decide to meet<br />

for hearings. The bill will likely be amended at that time to add further clarification to the original<br />

language.<br />

H.3336 is a bill by various House sponsors that would allow volunteer school personnel who have<br />

been trained by a registered nurse to administer insulin, glucagon or both to certain students. The<br />

bill received a favorable report in the House and has been sent to the Senate for consideration in<br />

January.<br />

While there are numerous other bills related to healthcare that The <strong>South</strong>ern Group is monitoring<br />

for SCNA, these are the primary bills <strong>of</strong> interest from the session. As a reminder, all bills still<br />

pending at the conclusion <strong>of</strong> session on May 13th will be active upon the return <strong>of</strong> the General<br />

Assembly in January. Because this is the first year <strong>of</strong> a two-year session it is also possible that<br />

various committees may hold hearings in the interim to reduce the workload for session in January,<br />

particularly since the General Assembly will meet in special session at various times throughout the<br />

coming months.<br />

Finally, on behalf <strong>of</strong> The <strong>South</strong>ern Group, thank you all for the opportunity to represent each <strong>of</strong><br />

you before the <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> General Assembly and the state’s executive branch <strong>of</strong> government.<br />

And as we begin the long road back from the past 15 months <strong>of</strong> a global pandemic, our entire firm<br />

thanks each <strong>of</strong> you for everything you have done and continue to do each and every day.<br />

You truly are our heroes and we are honored to be a part <strong>of</strong> your team here in the Palmetto state.<br />

Report Year: <strong>2021</strong><br />

As previously mentioned, the ANA General Membership Assembly was held virtually on the evening<br />

<strong>of</strong> June 18th, <strong>2021</strong>. The meeting, and conference leading up, was held virtually in June over a<br />

Eventually, we would like to manage a social media platform specifically for WCH members.<br />

The overall goal, as always, is to increase membership and participation for the Chapter.<br />

Meetings <strong>of</strong> the Board <strong>of</strong> Trustees<br />

The SCNF Board <strong>of</strong> Trustees meets on the second Friday <strong>of</strong> the second month <strong>of</strong> each quarter<br />

beginning in February. The <strong>2021</strong> meeting dates were February 12, May 14, August 13, and<br />

November 12. Due to the pandemic the platform was changed from an in-person meeting to a<br />

Zoom meeting. The virtual meetings continued until August 13, <strong>2021</strong>, when it was determined to<br />

safely meet in person. With the new variants in Covid the BOT has decided to make all meetings<br />

virtual except annually in February.<br />

Nurses Care License Plate Initiative:<br />

Through legislation, SCNF was able to obtain a special license plate referred to as the <strong>South</strong><br />

<strong>Carolina</strong> Nurses Foundation NURSES CARE License Plate. These vehicle license plates are available<br />

through the <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> Department <strong>of</strong> Motor Vehicles. Proceeds from the sale <strong>of</strong> the license<br />

plates as stated in the legislation must support nursing scholarships. The number <strong>of</strong> scholarships<br />

and amount <strong>of</strong> each scholarship has increased over time based on revenue generated. License<br />

plates can be obtained by going to: http://scdmvonline.com<br />


Scholarships and Awards Committee<br />

<strong>2021</strong> <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> Nurses Association<br />

The License Plate Initiative (Nurses Care Scholarship) application process is now conducted online.<br />

That fund is growing and has resulted in an increased amount for each scholarship. In <strong>2021</strong> it is<br />

anticipated that there will be $25,000 to be awarded as 5 undergraduate awards <strong>of</strong> $2,000 each<br />

and 5 graduate awards <strong>of</strong> $3,000. In addition, one scholarship will be awarded in honor <strong>of</strong> Gayle<br />

Williams, a deceased public health nurse, and an additional scholarship from the Rusty Koss funds.<br />

Marketing and Development<br />

SCNF again participated in Midlands Gives. Midlands Gives is an event that promotes raising<br />

money and awareness for Midlands nonpr<strong>of</strong>its during a 16-hour online giving challenge. Much<br />

preparation and planning are required <strong>of</strong> each participating non-pr<strong>of</strong>it which the Marketing and<br />

Development Committee (thanks to De Anna Cox) aptly spearheaded for SCNF. As a result <strong>of</strong> our<br />

participation, the development <strong>of</strong> a much-needed social media presence was begun and additional<br />

monies were added to the general fund. The May <strong>2021</strong> Midlands Gives event results were<br />

increased in both donors participating and funds raised above 2020 levels.<br />

Palmetto Gold<br />

This special committee <strong>of</strong> the Foundation is responsible for implementing the Palmetto Gold Nurse<br />

Recognition and Scholarship Program. Each year this program selects 100 <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> Nurses<br />

for awards <strong>of</strong> excellence in practice based on a rigorous nomination and blind screening process.<br />

In addition, each registered nurse education program in <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> is <strong>of</strong>fered a scholarship for<br />

an outstanding undergraduate nursing student selected by the school. The scholarships <strong>of</strong>fered<br />

in 2020 were for $1,500.00 each. The Renatta S. Loquist Graduate Nurse Scholarship recipient<br />

also is selected each year and this year will receive a $2,000.00 scholarship. Due to the pandemic<br />

Palmetto Gold was not held in 2020 but pending decisions is anticipated to be held in the evening<br />

at the Columbia Convention Center on September 18, <strong>2021</strong>.<br />

Accomplishments<br />

The year <strong>of</strong> <strong>2021</strong> has been another good year for the Foundation. Board members have supported<br />

the mission <strong>of</strong> SCNF by participation on their committees and contributing to the efforts <strong>of</strong> the<br />

Foundation through their individual expertise. The Foundation continues to be able to support<br />

scholarships and other activities to support nursing education, practice, and research. We have<br />

continued our fund-raising opportunities with participation in Midlands Gives. Our investments<br />

remain in a moderate risk model and year to date have produced good results. The board<br />

agreement to move management <strong>of</strong> SCNF funds from the Russell account to the West End account<br />

resulted in over a 9% increase <strong>of</strong> dividends. The ability to shift funds in an ever-changing market is<br />

vital.<br />

At the November <strong>Annual</strong> Meeting the membership will elect the new members <strong>of</strong> the Foundation<br />

Board <strong>of</strong> Trustees. An email was sent out to BOT members to bring in one candidate early to fill<br />

the vacancy left by Dr. Bowen. The <strong>of</strong>ficers elected for 2020 at the November SCNF Board meeting<br />

will continue in their current capacity with the exceptions <strong>of</strong> Dr. Felisha Bowen, who has moved to<br />

Alabama to accept the VP position <strong>of</strong> Inclusion and Diversity Officer. A vote <strong>of</strong> thanks for her great<br />

service to SCNF. The BOT will also see Pi Johnson leaving the board after many years <strong>of</strong> selfless<br />


<strong>2021</strong> <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> Nurses Association<br />

service. She will be so missed! Meg Stanley has been a valuable asset to the Board as well and will<br />

rotate <strong>of</strong>f.<br />

Media<br />

Having a VERY media savvy BOT member, Jason Thrift, has led SCNF to have visibility on Face<br />

<strong>Book</strong>, Instagram, and Twitter. Each month a new BOT board member has been featured with<br />

information about scholarship work being sent out to the world. Jason worked with Lee to update<br />

our current website and the website now has a new and fresh look. Jason and his talents have been<br />

a blessing for all <strong>of</strong> us on SCNF.<br />

Challenges<br />

A major challenge for the Board <strong>of</strong> Trustees is that the majority <strong>of</strong> the funds coming into the<br />

Foundation are designated for scholarships, research and community health projects. There are<br />

very limited operational funds and with an all-volunteer Board, whose members have many work<br />

and personal responsibilities, it has been difficult to support activities that could raise money for<br />

operational expenses. The Board has spent a great deal <strong>of</strong> time considering this issue and is in the<br />

process <strong>of</strong> seeking advice from our financial advisors, other state Nurses’ Foundations, and other<br />

community Foundation staff and consultants. We have also discussed closer ties with the SCNA that<br />

might lead to some efficiencies for both groups.<br />

In October, 2019 the SCNF launched a Friends <strong>of</strong> the Foundation campaign. The Friends <strong>of</strong><br />

the Foundation is a network <strong>of</strong> concerned nurses and individuals who support the operational and<br />

financial sustainability <strong>of</strong> the Foundation to achieve its mission, and to honor nurses who have<br />

made a significant, lasting, contribution to the pr<strong>of</strong>ession on a statewide basis in SC. The inaugural<br />

campaign will honor Renatta Loquist both for her service and commitment to SCNF and her many<br />

contributions toward advancing nursing in SC. The 2020 Friends <strong>of</strong> the Foundation featured leader<br />

is Dr. Stephanie Burgess. Dr. Burgess’s work for Advanced Practice Registered Nurses and as a<br />

former President for SCNA has been well established. The BOT will be promoting a new “Friend”<br />

for the coming year. Person still to be determined.<br />

The board continues to explore fund raising options that are less labor intensive and to look for<br />

large dollar continuing donations that could be used for operational funds. These discussions and<br />

explorations will continue as the BOT works toward making the Foundation even more successful<br />

than it is currently.<br />

During the pandemic SCNF partnered with “Just Cause Scrubs” a company that gives 50% <strong>of</strong> their<br />

pr<strong>of</strong>its to a 501C3 <strong>of</strong> the buyer’s choice. The scrubs are the same as purchased in the store, the<br />

quality is the same, but SCNF can be chosen as the buyer’s “Just Cause”/<br />

Rusty Koss from Koss Creative Creations continues to donate to nursing scholarships. SCNF now<br />

recognized these donations as “The Koss Scholarship” and Mr. Koss will be recognized at the<br />

September 18th Palmetto Gold Gala at the Columbia Convention Center.<br />


Summary<br />

<strong>2021</strong> <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> Nurses Association<br />

It has been my honor to serve as President <strong>of</strong> the <strong>South</strong> <strong>Carolina</strong> Nurses Foundation. The<br />

commitment and dedication <strong>of</strong> each board member to fulfill the Foundation’s mission <strong>of</strong> providing<br />

scholarships for undergraduate and graduate nursing students is inspirational. It has been a<br />

privilege to have worked beside these amazing individuals, and I wish the new and continuing BOT<br />

members much success as they continue to strive to meet the mission <strong>of</strong> the Foundation.<br />

Respectfully submitted,<br />

<strong>2021</strong><br />

Preparations for <strong>Annual</strong> Meeting and Convention have, as usual consumed the majority <strong>of</strong> the work<br />

during this quarter <strong>of</strong> the year. This is a major activity for SCNA, and one hopes that we shall be<br />

able to have this important revenue generating activity this year.<br />

Continuing Education has also been a busy component <strong>of</strong> work. SCNA is fortunate to have a great<br />

group <strong>of</strong> members working in this area.<br />

Multiple virtual meetings and calls with ANA as work has progressed despite restrictions.<br />

Preparations for the October/November/ December SC Nurse are on schedule. We shall be<br />

highlighting the upcoming Convention.<br />

We are on target for the <strong>2021</strong> SCNA Election which will take place in September. The election will<br />

open on September 20, <strong>2021</strong>, and will be held on-line.<br />

The Board <strong>of</strong> Directors has continued to meet as scheduled. We have had some new additions to<br />

the Board and two members have left the Board due to failure to attend meetings.<br />

This year has been another one <strong>of</strong> challenge and meeting challenges in new ways. SCNA has<br />

continued to be grateful to all members who have been part <strong>of</strong> the work <strong>of</strong> the organization, and<br />

all members who are a huge part <strong>of</strong> our ability to continue to provide services to nurses by being<br />

members <strong>of</strong> SCNA.<br />

SCNA continues to be served remarkably by Rosie Robinson as the Executive Assistant for the<br />

organization. She just great!<br />

On to 2022 and, may we all hope for a cessation <strong>of</strong> the truly difficult time evoked by COVID-19. It<br />

has been quite an experience to go through these past months. ONWARD!<br />
