Southern Miss Nursing Students Inducted into Honor Society

Main Content

The University of Southern Mississippi chapter, Gamma Lambda, held induction for new Sigma Theta Tau International members on Nov. 2, in the Thad Cochran Ballroom on the Hattiesburg Campus. Eighty seven baccalaureate, RN-BSN, and graduate students were inducted.

Sigma Theta Tau International is the only honor society of nursing. In 1922, six nurses founded the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) at the Indiana University Training School for Nurses, which is now the Indiana University School of Nursing, in Indianapolis, Ind., USA. The founders chose the name from the Greek words storgé, tharsos, and time -- meaning love, courage, and honor.

STTI membership is by invitation to baccalaureate and graduate nursing students who demonstrate excellence in scholarship and to nurse leaders exhibiting exceptional achievements in nursing. There are currently 500 chapters in 85 countries.

Those inducted include the following:
