Lambda's charter was installed at Wayne State University College of Nursing on June 12, 1953.  It is the tenth oldest of more than 490 Sigma Theta Tau chapters and the oldest chapter in the State of Michigan.  Founded in 1922 by six nurses at the Indiana University Training School, Sigma Theta Tau is the official Honor Society of Nursing and is now an international organization with the mission of advancing world health and celebrating nursing excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service.  This site provides you with an even greater ability to network with chapter members, upload photos, share documents, participate in chapter discussions and learn about chapter events.
