Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), is an honor society for nurses and nursing students. STTI seeks to enhance world health and celebrate nursing excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service. The organization has over 135,000 active members who reside in more than 85 countries.
The Eta Mu chapter, affiliated with the Rutgers School of Nursing—Camden, was chartered in 1984. Consistent with STTI's mission, the Eta Mu Chapter inducts members who demonstrate nursing excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service. Sigma Theta Tau invites undergraduate students who have completed at least one half of their nursing curriculum and who are ranked in the top 35 percent of their class to join the chapter. Graduate students who have achieved excellence according to the standards of the organization and have completed at least one quarter of their nursing curriculum will also be considered for induction. In addition, the Eta Mu chapter welcomes nurse leaders to apply for induction, which occurs towards the end of each spring semester.
