  • Nurse Leader Recruitment

    Do you know, or are you, a nurse leader and interested in becoming a Sigma Xi Phi member? Sigma defines a nurse leader as someone "who is a registered nurse, legally recognized to practice in his/her country with a minimum of a baccalaureate degree or the equivalent in any field and who has demonstrated achievement in nursing".

    Sigma Xi Phi would love to include more of the amazing nurses in our community in our chapter! They can nominate themselves or be nominated by any of our members. Our goal is to induct at least 20 nurse leaders this year!

    How do you do this?

    1) confirm they meet all eligibility requirements
    2) write a statement about their achievement in nursing in one of the following categories: scholarship, service, practice, leadership
    3) indicate how they learned about joining Sigma as a nurse leader
    4) upload a resume/CV

    Go to https://application.stti.org/#/ to complete the application process and select "I am a nurse leader". Then follow the prompts. If you need assistance, please contact any board member or message this page.

    Additionally, if you know a Sigma member that is currently affiliated with another chapter, they can transfer to our chapter when they renew their membership.

    Help us spread the word and grow our Xi Phi community!
