On Nov. 7, the Ruth S. Coleman College of Nursing, in partnership with Columbia College of Nursing, will host the chapter fall forum for international nursing honor society Sigma Theta Tau.

The College was inducted last spring into the prestigious organization as an at-large chapter.

The event will be held from 5 -6:30 p.m. in the Sister Camille Kliebhan Conference Center and will feature keynote speaker Dr. Barbara Nichols, leadership and diversity coordinator for the Wisconsin Center of Nursing.

If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to Cathy Knuteson.

Sigma Theta Tau is the only nursing honor society. It was founded in 1922 by six nursing students at Indiana University, with one chapter and six members. During the past 90 years, it has evolved to 469 chapters across the globe, with more than 400,000 inducted members who are active in more than 90 countries and territories.

Founded to advance the knowledge, learning and service of nurses, the honor society focuses on scholarship and leadership in its social and ethical commitment to excellence.
