Nursing Honor Society, Sigma Theta Tau, Spring and Fall Inductions

Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) is a nursing honor society founded in 1922 and consists of more than 135,000 active members across 85 countries whose mission is to “support the learning, knowledge and professional development of nurses committed to making a difference in health worldwide.” STTI now consists of more than 593 active members.  From its inception, STTI has valued excellence and scholarship; it was the first U.S. organization to fund nursing research.

Sigma Theta Tau International group photoThe local Hawaii chapter, Gamma Psi-At-Large Chapter inducted new members at their spring ceremony on April 25, 2015, and at their fall ceremony on December 5, 2015. UH Manoa Nursing congratulates the students who were recently inducted into STTI. Students who were able to attend took their oath as members after receiving their membership certificates and purple and white honor cords.

Dr. Estelle Codier, President of STTI and one of our very own associate professors at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, congratulated inductees. The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International offers many opportunities to enhance the membership experience via the vast resources it provides (e.g., online books, career tools, educational opportunities, leadership development, and periodicals). With its grant-offering partners, it supplies more than $200,000 annually for conducting nursing research.
