Eight nursing students at Tabor College in Wichita were elected Nov. 15 for membership in the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau Inter?national, as nurse leaders through Epsilon Gamma-at-Large Chapter.
The following Tabor College students were elected: Suzanne Garcia, Mary Joyce, Janine Kis?ner, Nadine Larcher, Krystal Mitchell, Johanna Ramzah, Charlene Ripp?stein and Jayci Wyant.
STTI is one of the largest international nursing organizations and works to foster, develop and connect nurse scholars and leaders worldwide to improve health care. The honor society promotes nursing excellence through its initiatives in research, leadership, an electronic library, programming and publications.
It also develops and distributes nursing knowledge for use in practice. Membership in STTI is by invitation to nurse professionals who have demonstrated achievement in nursing, hold a minimum of a baccalaureate degree and are a registered nurse.
?Sigma Theta Tau is about recognizing the value of scholarship and excellence in nursing practice,? said Marlene Pietrocola, chair of the nursing program at Tabor College. ?The students who received an invitation from Tabor College have consistently demonstrated excellence in their academic work.
?I expect no less from them as they apply what they have learned to their practice as a baccalaureate prepared registered nurse,? she added.
