Sigma Theta Tau International, the Honor Society for Nursing
Sigma Theta Tau International, Eta Mu Chapter, was chartered in the spring of 1984. Sigma Theta Tau is the International Honor Society of Nursing, which recognizes the outstanding achievement, leadership, and creativity of its members. In 1979, the Rutgers Nursing Honor Society was established for Camden College of Arts and Sciences nursing students. As the organization and the nursing program grew, application was made to become a chapter of the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International. Requirements were met and the evaluative process was successfully completed. At the beginning of the spring semester of the senior year, students who rank in the top 35 percent of their class, have met the leadership and ethical requirements, and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 are invited to make an application for membership.
