Honor Society inducts new members every fall
Membership in Sigma Theta Tau is highly competitive and recognized as a major accomplishment for all baccalaureate nursing students and professional nurses. Students invited to be members demonstrate stellar academic achievement, leadership qualities, and commitment to a career dedicated to being at the forefront of innovative nursing practice both locally and in the global community. Saint Luke’s College is working to become a recognized chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International—a global community of nurses who use their knowledge, skills, and abilities to promote health, prevent disease, and advance the science and art of nursing. Induction ceremonies are held every fall.
The Honor Society was founded in 2009 and is dedicated to the development of intellectual curiosity and inquiry and providing students with opportunities to acquire new knowledge and skills that will equip them to function as educated members of society.
