There are so many benefits to joining the Sigma community, such as networking, career, research, volunteering, and educational opportunities. So why not join today? 
Xi Chapter will induct new members again in Spring 2023. Application materials will be posted once available. 

The University of Pennsylvania’s Xi Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau, the International Honor Society of Nursing, will be accepting applications for new membership in the future. The application is typically sent out via email to nursing students. We strongly encourage all qualified students to apply by completing a membership application. Contact our membership counselor, Kim Trout, if you have any questions.
