The Nursing Honor Society was established and held its first induction ceremony in the spring of 1993. It was established to:
recognize superior achievement
recognize the development of leadership qualities
foster high professional standards
encourage creative work
strengthen commitment to the ideals and purposes of the profession
Membership is by invitation only and is open to candidates who have demonstrated superior scholastic achievement, evidence of professional leadership potential or marked achievement in the field of nursing. Candidates must have at least a 3.0 grade point average on a four-point scale. The number of students from one class shall not exceed one-third of the total number expected to graduate from that class.
Inductions usually occur in the spring and generally include graduating seniors and alumni. Attendance at inductions is required as well as payment of all approved fees. One does not need apply. A process exists that reviews all students/alumni for eligibility. Letters are sent to those who meet criteria. The current faculty advisers are Dr. Maria Fletcher and Dr. Florence Jerden.
Nursing students may also be eligible for membership in the School of Professional and Graduate Studies honor society, Delta Gamma Sigma.
