East Carolina University’s Beta Nu Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International will receive its 11th Chapter Key Award at the 42nd Biennial Convention to be held Nov. 16-20 in Indianapolis.

Sigma Theta Tau is the international honor society of nursing. The key award recognizes chapters that successfully recruit and retain members, generate publicity and programming, provide leadership development and foster international collaboration.     

Only one other chapter in the world has earned as many Chapter Key Awards, said Dr. Pamela J. Reis, assistant professor of nursing and president of the Beta Nu chapter.

“I’m grateful to all members of Beta Nu past and present who have worked hard for the past 39 years to make our chapter one of distinction and excellence,” Reis said.
