May 8 — UC Davis nursing graduates inducted into international honor society The largest group ever of nursing students from the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis were inducted into Sigma Theta Tau International, the Honor Society of Nursing, at a joint ceremony with the Zeta Eta Chapter in Sacramento. The Zeta Eta Chapter is a joint chapter of both UC Davis and California State University, Sacramento. The 66 UC Davis students inducted included master’s-degree leadership, family nurse practitioner and entry-level nursing students. This is largest group of UC Davis students inducted since the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing joined the chapter in 2012. The honor society is one of the largest international nursing organizations and works to foster, develop and connect nurse scholars and leaders worldwide to improve health care. The group promotes nursing excellence through its initiatives in research, leadership, an electronic library, programming and publications, and develops and distributes nursing knowledge for use in practice. Membership in Sigma Theta Tau International is by invitation to baccalaureate and graduate nursing students who demonstrate excellence in scholarship as well as nurse leaders who demonstrate exceptional achievement in nursing.
