The best and brightest students of the Frances M. McLaughlin Division of Nursing were inducted into the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing’s Iota Alpha Chapter in a morning ceremony at William Paterson University on Saturday, December 9.

Sigma Theta Tau’s Iota Alpha Chapter is in its 31st year at William Paterson University.

In order to be inducted into the invitation-only organization, students and faculty members must demonstrate academic excellence and leadership potential. Students must be in the top third of their class and have a minimum GPA of 3.0.

Bloomfield College students Samantha Jimenez, Brianna Bravo, Fernanda Altmirano, Alexis Rudolph, Regina Villagran, Xhorxhina Kokonozi, Ihsanah Williams, Jennifer Kero, and Sharon Herrera RN received the prestigious honor.

Bloomfield College professor, Lori Ann Palmieri, delivered the keynote address to the room that was filled with future and current nurses.

Founded in 1922, Sigma Theta Tau, meaning “love,” “courage,” and “honor”, is currently the second-largest nursing organization in the world with more than 130,000 members spanning 90 countries.

Resources for members include scholarly nursing speakers, Nursing Research Day, the chance to travel from coast-to-coast for sponsored conferences, fundraising events, community outreach projects, networking opportunities, and an interactive website with scholarship and educational opportunities, career tools, and publications and periodicals.

Lorraine Flood, MSN, RN, Faculty Advisor, Sigma Theta Tau, initiated the collaboration between the two New Jersey institutions in 2012. Currently Dr. Jacquelyn Svercauski serves as the Chapter’s Vice President. 

“The faculty and staff of the Frances M. McLaughlin Division of Nursing are extremely proud to be inducting our sixth cohort of nursing students,” expressed Flood. “Congratulations to our faculty and staff who serve not only as educators, but as role models of the professional nurse.”

Dr. Marianne Flood, Dr. Ismat Mikky, Dr. Neddie Serra, Dr. Carolyn Tuella, and Dr. Ann Masterson are other members of the Bloomfield College Nursing faculty that are Sigma Theta Tau members and have participated in this event through the years.
