Chi Gamma Chapter 505

The Farmingdale State College Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) Honor Society of Nursing is called the Chi Gamma Chapter.


The mission of the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International, is advancing world health and celebrating nursing excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service. Sigma Theta Tau International's vision is to be the global organization of choice for nursing.


In 1922, six nurses founded the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) at the Indiana University Training School for Nurses, which is now the Indiana University School of Nursing, in Indianapolis, Ind., USA. The founders chose the name from the Greek words Storgé, Tharros, and Timé, meaning "love," "courage," and "honor."
