Gamma Omicron-at-Large Chapter
Welcome to the Gamma Omicron at-Large Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing page. Gamma Omicron Chapter was chartered at the Medical University of South Carolina College of Nursing on April 14, 1978, with Alpha Chapter, Indiana University, as the sponsoring chapter. Over the past 30 years, over 2000 members have been inducted into the chapter. On April 14, 2003, in the effort of collaboration between the Medical University of South Carolina College Of Nursing, and Charleston Southern University Derry Patterson Wingo School of Nursing Gamma Omicron At-Large Chapter was chartered.
Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society represents excellence in nursing from a wide area of practice, including students, faculty, and other professional nurses in the community. Members demonstrate scholarship, leadership and achievement in nursing. Undergraduate students who have completed at least half of their coursework and are ranked in the top third of the class may be inducted into the Chapter at a special induction service. If you are a member of another chapter and would like to become active locally, you are invited to transfer your membership.
Gamma Omicron at-Large Chapter has a long and distinguished history of providing leadership to the profession of nursing, including supporting nursing education, scholarship, and service. We are a network of dedicated nursing professionals who are willing to share their expertise and knowledge with others.
