Celebrating 36 years of Excellence!
Lambda Gamma Chapter
Lambda Gamma Chapter promotes excellence in professional nursing education, research
and practice for the purpose of building healthy communities
Lambda Gamma Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau began as an Honor Society at Sonoma State Department of Nursing in 1985. The Steering Committee was led by Dr. Wendy Smith and Dr. Mary Lou McAthie. Lynne Lipsher, was the first Chapter President. From an initial membership of 20 students, we have grown to a vibrant chapter of over 800 members.
We were chartered in March 1990 as an official chapter of the International Honor Society of Nursing. The organization is located in the United States with members and chapters in many nations worldwide. Since our charter, we have grown to include activities that range from participation in the organization of a regional research conference, public forums on health care issues, support for members participating in the presentation of research locally and globally, scholarships for students and grants for nursing work in the local and international community.
Membership in Sigma Theta Tau is by invitation, and confers one of the highest honors of the nursing profession. Members are educators, researchers, administrators and clinicians. Students beginning their nursing careers are nurtured in their development. Active members are always being sought.
