Trisha Broderson inducted in nursing honor society Four senior nursing students from Jamestown College including Trisha Broderson, Vermillion, will be honored this year with induction into the Sigma Theta Tau International Society of Nursing.
According to Teree Rittenbach, Jamestown College's counselor for Sigma Theta Tau, students who are academically in the top 35 percent of their graduating senior class are invited to join the international organization.
Jamestown College is part of the Xi Kappa Chapter-At-Large along with the Tri-College Nursing Consortium and Moorhead State University. It is one of over 400 chapters worldwide.
Sigma Theta Tau, founded in 1922, promotes the use of nursing research in health care delivery and makes its resources available to all people and institutions interested in the latest nursing care knowledge.
Jamestown College, North Dakota's first independent four-year college, was founded in 1883, as a coeducational liberal arts and science college affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA). Its nursing program, established in the late 40s, is the first baccalaureate nursing program in the state. It is the first college or university in North Dakota to equip student resident rooms with a desktop computer and color printer linked to the campus network, dramatically enhancing access for its student body over 1,050. Students may select from 30 areas of academic interest and 17 pre-professional and certification programs including medicine, law, occupational therapy and veterinary medicine
