After a school of nursing receives information and pre-approval to proceed with the STTI honor society and chapter development process, the school of nursing shall form an independent, local nursing honor society. The honor society agrees to follow STTI's recommended honor society procedures and policies while forming and operating the honor society with intent to apply for official chapter status.
NOTE: Although STTI provides support and resources to the developing honor society, the honor society is not affiliated with STTI until after the chapter charter application has been approved AND the official chartering ceremony has taken place.
