Tau Rho Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International
Established in 2006, Quinnipiac University's Tau Rho chapter is one of eight Sigma Theta Tau chapters in Connecticut. Sigma Theta Tau is the official honor society of nursing. As one of the most distinctive organizations in professional nursing, the honor society influences and changes the health of people by engaging the intellectual capital of nurses around the globe. By developing and building connections with diverse people and entities, Sigma Theta Tau chapters enable nurses to collectively and individually develop, create, use and apply their knowledge to make a difference for the greater good of people's wellbeing. The honor society is comprised of chapters that are located on more than 500 college and university campuses internationally. Membership into the Tau Rho chapter is by invitation to baccalaureate and graduate nursing students, who demonstrate excellence in scholarship, and to nurse leaders exhibiting exceptional achievements in nursing.
Quinnipiac Student Nurses Association (QSNA)
QSNA was founded in 1997 and is led by second, third, and fourth year nursing students. With the spirit of education, leadership, and service at its core, the organization aims to sponsor events that benefit the surrounding community as well as the School of Nursing, such as resume workshops, flu clinics, health fairs, Thanksgiving baskets for local families in need, food/clothing drives for soldiers overseas, and fundraisers supporting the senior nursing student trip to the NSNA Convention each April.
