The National University Nursing Honor Society recognizes students who demonstrate academic excellence. Induction into the honor society is a commendation that acknowledges students' academic success and commitment to serving the school and the community. The following information describes the eligibility criteria for the National University Nursing Honor Society:
Must be enrolled in the BSN program
A cumulative GPA within the top 35% of your cohort
Commitment of service to the school
Professional activities in a nursing organization
In order to be considered for membership, you must have completed at least 12 credit hours at National University. You also must have completed one-half of the curriculum, which is completion of Medical Surgical Nursing II including clinical, to be asked to join.
If you meet the GPA requirement, you will receive an email to apply to the honor society.
The application requests a list of activities that fulfill the rest of the criteria. The list should demonstrate a variety of activities in addition to active participation. It should also show a variety of sponsoring organizations. For example, if NUSNA was the sponsor for an activity to meet the criterion for professional activities in a nursing organization, the sponsor for an activity to meet the community service criterion should be a community-based organization, not the school-based NUSNA.
The NU Nursing Honor Society is in the beginning phases of Sigma Theta Tau's chapter development process. Sigma Theta Tau is the international honor society of nursing and is the second-largest nursing organization in the world. Members of the NU Honor Society will become members of STTI when that transition takes place. For more information about Sigma Theta Tau, visit their website.
