Sigma Theta Tau Membership
How can I become a member?
The tradition of honor societies is that individuals who qualify and who demonstrate leadership potential are recommended by current society members for an invitation to join. An invitation should be received with pride.
Typically, as an honor society, one who demonstrates leadership potential can become a member in one of two ways:
- WMU baccalaureate program: upper 35% of class and demonstrates nursing academic excellence
- WMU master program: completed one-quarter of the required graduate curriculum; achieved excellence according to Sigma Theta Tau International Society of Nursing approved standards
- Community member or WMU master program student who has demonstrated achievement in the areas of nursing education, practice, research, administration or publication. Requirements also include current R.N. licensure, and completion of a baccalaureate degree or higher in nursing or another field, and two professional letters of recommendation.
- Current Sigma Theta Tau International member: can be a member of multiple chapters or honor societies
