Sigma Theta Tau Nursing Honor Society

Sigma Theta Tau International, Honor Society of Nursing

Lambda Eta Chapter

The Lambda Eta Chapter, offers an opportunity for recognition to nursing majors who demonstrate superior achievement, leadership qualities, and creative work. The Society fosters high professional standards and endeavors to strengthen commitment to the ideals and purposes of the profession. Students will be invited for membership after completion of at least one-half of the required curriculum and encouraged to maintain membership for the duration of their nursing careers.

The Lambda Eta Chapter usually has two educational dinner meetings per year, a general business meeting, the induction ceremony with a speaker, and participates in a local community service event.  The chapter also sends a delegation to the Biennial International Convention every other year. For the past four conventions speakers have been selected from Lambda Eta to present their academic work at the international convention. Two scholarships are awarded yearly to SU undergraduate and graduate students.
