Colby-Sawyer’s chapter of Sigma’s Nursing Honor Society, Psi Sigma, inducted 13 undergraduate nursing students and one Nurse Leader earlier this week.

Sigma’s mission is advancing world health and celebrating nursing excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service. To be inducted, students must be in a baccalaureate program, have a GPA of 3.0, rank in the top 35 percent of their graduating class, meet the expectation of academic integrity and obtain faculty endorsements. Only individuals who have obtained a baccalaureate degree and have made a significant contribution to the nursing profession can be inducted as Nurse Leaders.

“Being inducted into Sigma is a considerable achievement. We are so fortunate to have established an official chapter here at Colby-Sawyer through our partnership with Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. Psi Sigma is just one example of the many exciting opportunities afforded to our students through our continued collaboration with DHMC,” said Jennifer Holl ’06, assistant professor at Colby-Sawyer’s School of Nursing and Health Professions and president of Psi Sigma.

Colby-Sawyer's Nursing Program was established in 1981 in partnership with Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, its clinical education facility. It is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and approved by the New Hampshire Board of Nursing. Psi Sigma is the 544th chapter of Sigma.
