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.

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
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.
