Founders' Day 2019!


Sigma Foundation for Nursing’s Heritage Society has more than 400 Fellows who have made an investment in all generations of nurses around the world. In 1922, six nurses founded STTI at the Indiana University Training School for Nurses, which is now the Indiana University School of Nursing, in Indianapolis, Ind., USA. The founders chose the name from the Greek words storgé, tharsos, and timé, meaning
love, courage, and honor.

Thank you to all who attended Founders Day!



For being a proud member and a part of The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) legacy!
