Founders Chapel looked absolutely beautiful on Saturday morning, April 7th as the Zeta Mu Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau inducted over 95 USD students into the national nursing honor society.

Sigma membership is by invitation to baccalaureate and graduate nursing students who demonstrate excellence in scholarship (GPA of 3.5 or greater) and to nurse leaders exhibiting exceptional achievements in nursing.

USD Dean, Dr. Jane Georges, gave the opening remarks and discussed the history of  Sigma Theta Tau. Dr Georges suggested how the Sigma organization can assist current students as they move through their nursing career.

USD had 66 nursing students inducted into this honor society.

From its inception, Sigma has recognized the value of scholarship and excellence in nursing practice. In 1936, Sigma became the first US organization to fund nursing research.

Today, Sigma supports these values through its numerous professional development products and services that focus on the core areas of education, leadership, career development, evidence-based nursing, research, and scholarship. These products and services advance the learning and professional development of members and all nurses who strive to improve the health of the world’s people.

Many thanks to Sigma Theta Tau faculty adviser, Dr Lyn Puhek for her work in getting all of the USD students ready for induction.
