Redefining the Classroom

Nursing inducts inaugural class into honor society

Posted: July 3rd, 2014

SIGMA THETA TAU – Lake Superior University's School of Nursing has launched its first honor society. The Lake Superior Nursing Honor Society will have charter status before becoming fully vested in 2016 with Sigma Theta Tau, an international honor society of nursing founded in 1922, with more than 130,000 members in 85 countries. The induction was in conjunction with a daylong learning and continuing-education workshop offered jointly with War Memorial Hospital, the Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians Health Center, and the Kaplan Higher Education Group. Topics included pain management, diabetes management, nutrition, critical thinking, and nursing school success.
