History

Efforts to establish a local chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) Honor Society of Nursing began in 1985 between the School of Nursing at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro and the Department of Nursing at Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah, Georgia. A joint chapter between the two institutions was founded and the first induction ceremony was held on May 3, 1990.

Since the initial chartering of that first chapter, membership and activity in Sigma Theta Tau continued to grow. In October 2002, members at each university were approved to form independent chapters.

With the consolidation of Georgia Southern University and Armstrong State University in 2018, the two independent chapters once again reunited to form the single Rho Psi Chapter with membership and activities to include both campuses of Georgia Southern University.

Study Abroad Courses in Ireland

Expand your knowledge and explore research in Wexford, Ireland.

Wexford is the name of a town in southeast Ireland founded by Vikings over 800 years ago. Historical, attractive, lively and safe, Wexford Town and the surrounding Wexford County are about two hours by road or rail from Dublin. Due in part to almost two centuries of trade and emigration links between Wexford and the city of Savannah, Georgia Southern University selected the location as its European study abroad and research campus.
