Sigma Theta Tau is the National Honor Society of Nursing. Psi Chapter is the University of Washington sponsored chapter and was formed to recognize and promote scholarship and leadership in the profession. The PSI chapter founded at the University of Washington became the PSI chapter-at-large January 1, 1991 and now represents the University of Washington, Pacific Lutheran University and Seattle Pacific University. Eligible undergraduate students include those who have completed half of the nursing component of the baccalaureate curriculum, rank in the top one-third of their graduating class and show evidence of leadership. Graduate students with bachelor's degrees in nursing are also eligible to apply for membership. Informational meetings are held each year prior to the application deadline. Notice of those meetings, as well as how to obtain an application, will be posted via email to all students.
