The Epsilon Eta Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International was chartered in 1980 at SIUE. It is open to nursing students and leaders who meet established academic and professional criteria both at graduate and undergraduate levels and to community nursing leaders. The society is concerned with the advancement of professional nursing through scholarship, research and practices.
Undergraduate students must have a GPA of 3.0 and shall have completed half of their program. Undergraduates must be in the top 35 % of their class. Graduate students must have a GPA of 3.5 and completed a minimum of one quarter of the required graduate curriculum. A nurse leader must have a minimum of a baccalaureate degree or the equivalent in any field, and have demonstrated achievement in nursing. Undergraduates and graduate students who meet the criteria are mailed letters of invitation by the Eligibility counselor and president of Sigma Theta Tau Epsilon Eta, six weeks prior to any induction.

Many of our members join as students, and then fail to update their email address as they transition into their professional roles. We encourage you to sign in to the STTI website and update your contact information. All of the communication is electronic.
