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.

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

The recent induction ceremony took place at
the Arkansas Union and featured Chapter President Tom Kippenbrock, College of
