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

Members and inductees learned about the
organization’s history and mission before inductees received their purple lapel
