FROM: Mary Beth Kuehn, Chair
RE: Sigma Theta Tau
Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) is the honor society of nursing with chapters located all over the world. The mission of the organization is to improve the health of the world’s people. Chi-at-Large is the local chapter formed by Bethel University, Gustavus Adolphus College, St. Catherine University, and St. Olaf College.
There are two ways to become a member of STTI. First, graduating students are invited to membership in the fall semester of their senior year. Students must have a minimum GPA of 3.0, rank in the upper one-third of their nursing class, and receive at least two nominations by nursing faculty.
The second way to become a member is available to practicing nurses. Practicing nurses who exhibit leadership qualities and are recommended by a current STTI member are eligible to join the organization as a community member. Any current senior student, who is not invited to membership in the fall semester of their senior year, is encouraged to seek future membership as a community member.
On behalf of the entire St. Olaf Department of Nursing faculty, I extend our best wishes to the newly inducted members from the Class of 2018. I hope you will join me in congratulating them on becoming STTI members. This year’s new members are:
Megan Gehle Yolanda Marble
Lauren Harlow Emma Muter
Alexis Lehrer Laura Sheehy
