Message from Regional Director 

Welcome to the official website of the Southeast Region of Chi Eta Phi Sorority Incorporated.

I am delighted and honored to serve as the Regional Director. Together with the Board of directors and Chapter Basileus of the region we will move our region to higher heights as we continue “Striving for Excellence through Unity”. Through our National Theme “Developing Healthy Communities through Advocacy, Collaboration, Education, Leadership, Research and Service “and under the leadership of our National President Pricilla Murphy we will continue the legacy of Service for Humanity.

The Southeast Region is one of five (5) Regions of Chi Eta Phi Sorority, Incorporated. Chi Eta Phi is an international nonprofit service organization composed of Registered nurses and nursing students. The sorority was chartered in 1932 at Freedman’s Hospital, now Howard University Hospital in Washington DC. 

In 1946, a committee was established to divide the states into regional districts. In 1954, the Southeast Region became the second officially organized region of the sorority. This organization took place at the Veteran’s Administration Nurses’ Home, Tuskegee, Alabama. States in this region include Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. At its inception, the Region had five (5) graduate chapters and one (1) undergraduate chapter. Today the Region has grown to 40 (forty) graduate chapters and 7 (seven) undergraduate chapters.
