Nursing Honor Society
Sigma Theta Tau International is the Honor Society of Nursing. The mission of the society is to support the learning, knowledge and professional development of nurses committed to making a difference in health worldwide.
In 1922 six nurses founded Sigma Theta Tau at the Indiana University Training School for Nurses, now the Indiana University School of Nursing, in Indianapolis, Ind., USA. The founders chose the name from the Greek words Storgé, Tharsos and Timé meaning "love," "courage" and "honor." The honor society became incorporated in 1985 as Sigma Theta Tau International Inc., a nonprofit organization with a 501(c)(3) tax status in the United States.
Membership to Sigma Theta Tau International is by invitation to baccalaureate and graduate nursing students who demonstrate excellence in scholarship, and to nurse leaders exhibiting exceptional achievements in nursing. Chapters include the Dallas and Denton Sigma Theta Tau Beta Beta Chapter and the Houston Sigma Theta Tau Beta Beta Chapter.
