The George Washington University School of Nursing established the Phi Epsilon chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Nursing Honor Society to support students, alumni and nursing leaders. Phi Epsilon facilitates professional development through collaboration, education and development and dissemination of knowledge.
As a virtual chapter, our meetings and events are held online to allow people to join from anywhere. Our strength and success are rooted in our student and alumni members, and we look forward to welcoming nursing students and leaders into our community. For more information on the Phi Epsilon chapter, please visit our chapter website.
