Another organization prominent in our School of Nursing is our honor society. The School of Nursing's local chapter, Omicron Lambda, is a member of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing. The vision of the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International is to create a global community of nurses who lead in using knowledge, scholarship, service and learning to improve the health of the world's people. Impacting world health begins at the local level and opportunities for growth and participation are many. Members explore evidenced-based principles and practice, interact with other nurses, and learn from others by attending honor society meetings and events.
Membership is by invitation to baccalaureate and graduate nursing students who demonstrate excellence in scholarship, leadership, and/or service/ministry and to nurse leaders exhibiting exceptional achievements in nursing. Senior students in the top third of their nursing class are invited to join. The induction ceremony is a highpoint of spring activity, welcoming new members and celebrating nursing. Many members hold leadership positions both at the local and international levels.
