Welcome to Kappa Pi -at -Large Chapter

Sigma Theta Tau International (Sigma) mission is advancing world health and celebrating nursing excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service. As a chapter in this prestigious nursing honor society, Kappa Pi works to advance this mission through our activities.  Sigma and Kappa Pi recognize that the power of the organization is the people - each one of us - working together to make a difference.

Chapter event information can be found on this chapter website and Facebook page. Contact a member to learn about the many benefits and resources available to Kappa Pi members!
