Honor Society Overview
Honor Society FAQs
How do I become a member?
Membership is by invitation. There are three classifications of membership:
Each candidate for membership is required to meet the eligibility criteria. All continuing students and recent graduates are screened for eligibility and sent an invitation in the late summer for the fall induction.
What is the dues structure?
As a member of Sigma Theta Tau International Nursing Honor Society, dues are submitted directly to STTI.
Phi Pi: $35.00
How do I renew my membership?
Renewal notices are sent out each year from STTI for both STTI and Phi Pi Chapter.
What happens this year as we transition from Chamberlain College of Nursing Honor Society (CCNHS) to Phi Pi Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau?
All current members of CCNHS have met STTI membership criteria and can be recognized as charter members and are eligible to join our new Phi Pi Chapter.
What if I didn’t join the Honor Society when I received an invite as a student, can I still join the Phi Pi Chapter?
The invitations of anyone contacted for the fall 2012 inductions remain active for one year. Please contact Sharon Phelps, Governance Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org for updated instructions.
All alumni who graduated prior to 2012, who are interested in STTI membership at Chamberlain College of Nursing, can be invited as a Nurse Leader. Please contact: Dr. Ellen Poole, President of Phi Pi Chapter at email@example.com or Sharon Phelps, Governance Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org , for further information so we may process your application.
What about current students?
The eligibility criteria stated above applies. Students who meet the stated criteria by the Spring 2013 Term B (June 2013) will be invited to join.
What if I graduate between your induction times?
Each year, we go back to our last induction cutoff date (June 2012), so all eligible candidates between June 2012 to June 2013 are contacted. We highly recommend that graduating students keep their email addresses current with the registrar’s office, as this is our point of contact.
What is the next step?
Watch your email for an invitation from Dr. Ellen Poole, Phi Pi President. The email will come from “member services at STTI” and contain Phi Pi in the subject line. Your spam mail filter may send the email to your junk folder, so please check that area frequently.
What if I don’t receive an email? How long should I wait before I contact someone?
If you have not received the email in your inbox or junk mail folders by September 3, 2013, please contact Sharon Phelps (email@example.com).
Do I have to pay the dues in full to join?
Yes. The online induction system does not take partial payments. All invitees not paid in full by the deadline for induction will not be allowed to participate in the induction ceremony or be included in the induction program.
What if I can’t attend induction?
All new members unable to attend an induction ceremony will be inducted in absentia. Their induction certificates will be mailed to them after the ceremony.
I am an online student or faculty member, can I attend induction?
Of course! Our online students and faculty are welcome to attend any of the campus induction ceremonies. You will receive an email with induction site details and instructions on how to RSVP to the site you wish to attend.
What if I don’t have the money to join now? Can I join later?
Of course, you may join later. The invitation to become a Phi Pi member is good for one year. Simply return your intent form and save the email from Dr. Poole that contains the link to join. Or, if you don’t have the e-mail, contact your academic advisor who will contact Phi Pi for you.
