Every Member Giving

Your donations support members like Jordan who received a grant to attend the International Nursing Research Congress in Cape Town, Africa to expand his professional network and share his work caring for the elderly in the Philippines with the nursing community. 

“Without the grant, I could not possibly have presented my paper; learned the latest trends, issues, and updates in health care delivery system; and met diverse nursing professionals from around the globe. This opportunity opened a lot of doors for my personal and professional development.”

Campaign goals and progress

Our goal is to raise US $4 million by 2020 to ensure the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International is the global organization of choice for nursing.

Your donations provide resources nurses need to conduct research, further their leadership development, and participate in initiatives that improve global health.
