Sigma Theta Tau: An Honor Society

MTSA joined Vanderbilt School of Nursing to advance the IOTA Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau to an “at Large” chapter.  This union allows MTSA to offer its students an opportunity to participate in an honor society.  Sigma’s mission is to help in “developing nurse leaders anywhere to improve healthcare everywhere.”  Sigma now has over 135,000 active members in over 100 countries.

MTSA focuses on the scholarship and service arms of Sigma that merge thoughtfully with the MTSA mission of excellence in education and life of service.  Multiple scholarship funds exist for students, fellows and faculty to apply for assistance in their research endeavors.  Our local IOTA at large chapter participates with multiple local organizations to provide service for those in need.

To apply for new membership, please contact the MTSA Evidence-based practice instructor.  To transfer your membership to the IOTA at large chapter, please visit
