Nursing students inducted to Sigma Theta Tau International
Senior B.S.N., R.N. to B.S.N., and M.S.N. students were inducted into Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing on April 10 at St. Luke’s Church in Indianapolis.

The group was inducted into the Alpha Chapter with other IU campuses. Alpha Chapter was the first chapter of Sigma, started by six Indiana University students. Students must have at least a 3.5 GPA to be eligible and must be invited to become a member.  This was the largest group of inductees from IU East.

Students received a certificate, signed the Sigma Theta Tau Alpha Chapter book, and received their purple and white chords.
