Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing was founded in early 1922 by six nurses know as the Sigma Founders. Its mission is to support the learning, knowledge, and professional development of nurses. The name “Sigma Theta Tau” comes from the Greek words Storgé, Tharsos, and Timé, meaning “love,” “honor,” and “courage,” all vital components of nursing. Since 1922, Sigma has grown to over 130,000 members and 90 countries.
To support the learning, knowledge, and professional development of nurses Sigma offers grants, online continuing nursing education, education and research conferences, Virginia Henderson Global Nursing e-Repository, Sigma's career development, and academy programs.
Sigma also publishes many publications such as the Journal of Nursing Scholarship, Worldviews on Evidence-Based Nursing™, Reflections on Nursing Leadership along with many educational nursing books.
