Mount Charters New Honor Society Chapter for Nursing Excellence
July 23, 2011 -- The Mount established a chapter of the prestigious Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International, during a June ceremony with 122 nursing faculty and students inducted as charter members.
The new Phi Lambda Chapter was welcomed in a celebration at The Rose Hills Auditorium on the Doheny Campus led by Carol Huston, past president of Sigma Theta Tau International and chair of the International Leadership Succession Committee.
The honor society is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to improve the health of people worldwide through leadership and scholarship in practice, education and research. Membership in the honor society is by invitation to baccalaureate and graduate nursing students who demonstrate excellence in scholarship, and to nurse leaders who demonstrate exceptional achievement in nursing. The honor society counts 463 chapters worldwide.
To become part of the honor society, a school of nursing must offer a minimum of a baccalaureate degree or the equivalent and be accredited by a recognized accrediting body. To read more about Mount nursing programs, click here.
