About Us

Sigma Theta Tau is the only international honor society of nursing. Villanova's Alpha Nu chapter was established in 1966 to recognize nursing students for:
  • Superior achievement
  • Leadership
  • High professional standards
  • Creative work
  • Commitment to the high ideals of the nursing profession
Research grants, conferences, publications, films, exhibits and awards are extended nationally by Sigma Theta Tau. At Villanova, membership is an honor conferred on students by invitation. This follows after a committee review of qualified students.
