How do I become a member?
Membership is by invitation. There are three classifications of membership:
Each candidate for membership is required to meet the eligibility criteria. Students who receive an invitation to join the Honor Society will also receive an Intent Form to verify coursework and credentials plus an Endorsement form. Upon return of the Intent to Join Form and the Endorsement forms, the membership committee reviews candidate materials, and then invites candidates to the induction ceremony.
How often do you invite new members?
Invitations are sent to Honor Society candidates once a year. Inductions are held each Fall.
When is the next induction?
The next induction takes place on October 20, 2011 in St. Louis, MO. This will be a chartering and induction ceremony, as we become Phi Pi Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI). We will be the 494th chapter. There is no induction fee as it is included in the membership dues.
Will it matter if I cannot attend induction?
As a national school, we recognize that not all inductees or members are able to attend the induction ceremony. Therefore, new members can be inducted in absentia.
What is the dues structure?
As member of Sigma Theta Tau International Nursing Honor Society, dues are submitted directly to STTI.
Phi Pi: $35.00
How do I renew my membership?
Renewal notices are sent out each year from STTI for both STTI and Phi Pi Chapter.
What happens this year (2011) as we transition from Chamberlain College of Nursing Honor Society (CCNHS) to Phi Pi Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau?
All current members of CCNHS have met STTI membership criteria and can be recognized as charter members and are eligible to join our new Phi Pi Chapter.
What if I didn’t join CCNHS when I received an invite as a student? Can I join the Phi Pi Chapter?
Any graduate contacted for the spring 2010 or 2011 inductions will receive our initial electronic invitation from STTI because you’ve met the eligibility criteria.
All alumni who graduated prior to 2009 who are interested in STTI membership at Chamberlain College of Nursing can be invited as a Nurse Leader. Please contact: Dr. Ellen Poole, President of Phi Pi Chapter at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information so we may process your application.
What about current students?
The eligibility criteria stated above applies. Students who meet the stated criteria by Fall Term B (February 2011) will be invited to join.
