Thank you

for being a proud member and a part of the STTI legacy!

Celebrate an honored tradition.

In 1922, six nurses founded STTI at the Indiana University Training School for Nurses, which is now the Indiana University School of Nursing, in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. The founders chose the name from the Greek words storgé, tharsos, and timé, meaning love, courage, and honor. Each biennium, STTI recognizes esteemed nurses and other individuals from around the world who exemplify these three words.
