The University of Arkansas’ (UA) Pi Theta chapter of Sigma Theta Tau recently inducted 43 new members, including nursing students from the university’s Eleanor Mann School of Nursing and practicing nurses working in the area.
 
The international honor society of nurses accepts members in recognition of their superior achievements in nursing and their development of leadership qualities. Through Sigma Theta Tau, members help push high professional standards in their fields and collectively encourage creative work and commitment to nursing ideals and purposes.
 
Students must have completed a certain number of credit hours to be eligible for the organization, at which point they must also maintain a minimum grade point average, class rank and academic integrity.

Practicing nurses must have a degree and license and must demonstrate achievement and leadership in the field and their community.
 
The recent induction ceremony took place at the Arkansas Union and featured Chapter President Tom Kippenbrock, College of Education and Health Professions Assistant Dean Fran Hagstrom, Assistant Clinical Professor of Nursing Angela Stewart and Assistant Professor of Nursing Anna Jarrett as speakers.

Members and inductees learned about the organization’s history and mission before inductees received their purple lapel ribbons -- with the society’s name printed on them -- to indicate their membership.
