Sigma Theta Tau International

Sigma Theta TauSigma Theta Tau International (STTI), the Honor Society of Nursing, is dedicated to improving the health of people worldwide by increasing the scientific base of nursing practice. Members are nursing scholars and students committed to the pursuit of excellence in clinical practice, education, research and leadership.

In 1922, six students from the Indiana University Training School for Nurses in Indianapolis, Indiana founded the organization, choosing the society's name from three Greek words meaning love, courage and honor. As women ahead of their time, the founders vision for the society helped bring recognition to nursing as a science.

The school of nursing at Belmont has always had a commitment to excellence in both nursing scholarship and practice. Belmont's chapter of STTI, Omicron Phi, was chartered May 2, 1998. We currently have approximately 150 members. Undergraduate students who rank in the top 35% of their class after completing half of the nursing curriculum are invited to join STTI. Graduate students who have completed one quarter of their curriculum and have demonstrated excellence in nursing are invited to join STTI. Members of the community can also be invited as Nurse Leaders.

Omicron Phi holds several events to promote the recognition of excellence and the dissemination of scholarship. For more information, visit our chapter's website linked here.
