Zeta Chi History

The Zeta Chi Chapter was chartered on November 29, 1963 in Houston, Texas. Twenty-six nurses together with the covener, Eunice Pointer formed the initial chapter. The Zeta Chi Chapter was incorporated by the State of Texas in 1988. In April of 2010, the chapter was granted 501C (3) status as a non-profit/exempt organization (Charitable and Educational Fund). Through the years the Zeta Chi Chapter has embarked on many community partnerships and relationships. The Zeta Chi Chapter is truly committed to serving the community as exhibited by our community service in conducting blood pressure screenings, offering pampering sessions to battered women, presentations to high school students pursuing a health profession and awarding scholarships to nursing students. The Zeta Chi Chapter is in partnership with American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, American Diabetes Association, Star of Hope Mission, Covenant House and Michael E. DeBakey High School for Health Professions. The chapter’s most recent partnership, through the national office, is with Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.
