How you can help

petersen, christine
"As a member of Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), I am now able to engage in lifelong learning through online journals and continuing education courses. I am passionate about nursing on a global level and am excited about the international networking opportunities within STTI, both online and through conferences and events. Joining STTI was the beginning of a new chapter in my nursing career; a chapter characterized by leadership, research, and opportunity."
