Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) is the nursing honor society founded in 1922 and consists of more than 135,000 active members across more than 90 countries whose mission is to “support the learning, knowledge and professional development of nurses committed to making a difference in health worldwide.” From its inception, STTI has valued excellence and scholarship; it was the first U.S. organization to fund nursing research.
STTI consists of more than 500 chapters. The Hawaii Gamma Psi-At-Large chapter held its first induction ceremony in April 1992. Its most recent Hawaii statewide induction ceremony was held in spring 2016 at the Manoa Grand Ballroom at the Japanese Cultural Center in Honolulu, Hawaii.
The following list consists of all University of Hawaii at Manoa inductees. Those who were able to attend, took their oath as members after receiving their membership certificates and purple and white cords.
