Nursing Student Valerie Pauer Named to International Honor Society
MANCHESTER, N.H. – A Brookline resident is among select students from Saint Anselm College in Manchester, N.H., who has been inducted into Sigma Theta Tau, the International Honor Society of Nursing.
In a ceremony this fall, Sigma Theta Tau inducted Valerie Pauer of Brookline among 22 students for the 2018-2019 academic year. Pauer is expected to graduate in May 2019 from Saint Anselm College with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
To be considered for induction into Sigma Theta Tau, students must have completed at least half of the nursing curriculum in baccalaureate programs at accredited institutions of higher education, rank in the upper 35 percent of their graduating class, and have a minimum 3.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale.
In 1922 six nurses founded Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), the Honor Society of Nursing, at the Indiana University Training School for Nurses, now home of the Indiana University School of Nursing. The society’s name derives from the Greek words for love, courage, and honor. Currently, STTI has more than 135,000 active members who live in more than 90 countries.
