Anderson University’s School of Nursing recently announced the charter induction ceremony of the Sigma Theta Tau International Nursing honor society. The ceremony and luncheon will take place in the lobby of Reardon Auditorium on Friday, May 5, at 12 noon. Marlene Poe-Greskamp, AU associate professor of Nursing and president of the AU chapter, Upsilon Gamma, will be the featured speaker.

“The AU chapter of the Sigma Theta Tou Honor Society is one of several recent events in the life of the School of Nursing--including the new MSN/MBA graduate program--that has helped it reach a unique level in the nursing profession, recognizing excellence and achievement in the nursing profession,” said Poe-Greskamp.

The purposes of Sigma Theta Tou are to recognize superior achievement, develop leadership, to foster high professional standards, encourage creative work, and strengthen the commitment and ideals of the nursing profession. The School of Nursing at Anderson University is committed to giving students the opportunity to grow and learn from community leaders in nursing.

Membership in the Anderson University Honor Society of nursing is an honor conferred on baccalaureate and graduate nursing students and/or nursing leaders in the community who have demonstrated excellence in nursing. Basic membership requirements for graduate students include: completion of a minimum of one-quarter of the required graduate curriculum, and a 3.5 grade point average.
