My name is (name and title) and we are delighted you are part of this occasion. [Celebrating honor and excellence] It is my pleasure to welcome and congratulate our candidates. We are here to celebrate you and your achievements. This evening we are privileged to induct you into the world s only nursing honor society as among the most dynamic nursing leaders and scholars. You are among a distinguished group of nursing students and professionals who have met or exceeded rigorous standards and have demonstrated the ideal qualities of a leader and a scholar. You truly deserve our congratulations. <<Pause for applause>> Slide 2: Members Are As you are welcomed into this community, I applaud the current and future roles you now play and will play as clinicians, administrators, researchers, educators and health policy analysts. You live out your role with integrity, intelligence, caring and courage. You embody leadership, excellence and scholarship in the profession of nursing. For this, we welcome you into this worldwide community of nurse scholars with the expectation of learning learning from you, learning about you, and learning with you.

2 [Mission, Vision, Strategic Directions] The honor society was founded by innovative thinkers who looked forward to a profession that recognizes and uses knowledge and learning to lead in service to others. Founded in 1922 by six students of nursing at Indiana University in the United States of America, the honor society began with one chapter and six members. During the past 85 years, it has evolved to 451 chapters across the globe, with more than 400,000 inducted members who are active in more than 90 countries and territories. Slide 3: Firsts Over course of the organization s history, the commitment to knowledge, learning and service has guided the society in achieving many milestones and firsts in the nursing profession: First nursing research grants First scholarly nursing journal with the Journal of Nursing Scholarship. First philanthropic campaign and resultant Center for Nursing Scholarship First electronic library of nursing research and knowledge First to embrace membership and chapters outside the United States First knowledge synthesis and international peer reviewed Evidence Based Practice journal Slide 4: Global Health 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, we enable nurses to collectively and individually develop, create, use and apply their knowledge to make a difference for the greater good of people s well being. This is our vision and mission. [Foundational Values/Principles] Founded to advance the knowledge, learning and service of nurses, the honor society focuses on scholarship and leadership in its social and ethical commitment to

3 excellence. As an innovative, forward looking organization, the honor society is continually changing to fulfill its mission and vision. Yet it values its heritage. Our founders chose the honor society s name for the words in the Greek language meaning love, courage and honor. They believed these to be enduring values that are at the root of the nursing profession the foundation upon which the art and science grows and is used. Slide 5: Strategic Direction These enduring values come alive today through our collective pursuit in knowledge, leadership and service. We are committed to building a global community which is focused on the creation and application of knowledge and leadership to make a difference for others. We value the diversity of nurses around the world and work to enable relationships, collaboration and partnerships. These are our strategic directions. Slide 6: Our crest symbolizes these enduring values, reminding us of our commitment to: Crest and Key wisdom and discernment, as represented by the eye; service, professional endeavor and strength of leadership, as represented by the pillars of stone at the right and left; and knowledge, as represented by the lamp. The key reminds us of our charge to uphold love, courage and honor, and is a symbol of scholarship. The cup denotes the satisfaction of professional life. The circle of gold with its six stars represents our six founders. The letters in blank Sigma Theta Tau represent our charge. The lamp is the lamp of knowledge. As you wear your key, please remember that it symbolizes your nursing excellence. [Experiencing membership] Slide 7: Experience Membership So you may wonder, what does all of this mean for me?

4 Our purpose this evening is to honor you as a new member, but also to support you as you begin your journey of experiencing membership during the entire course of your nursing career. I challenge you to frame this induction as a beginning a beginning of thinking differently about yourself, your impact, your contribution to the profession and health care globally. Within the Honor Society of Nursing local, regional, national and international environments, you will discover communities of practice and common interest that will open doors and provide meaningful professional experiences. And you will find a hospitable place to invest your time and talents and access knowledge resources. Throughout this event you will learn of ways to become more involved and connected. The experience is yours to build. While the Omicron Delta chapter is a virtual chapter, you will have many opportunities to stay connected to the chapter, its members and the resources that we offer. Not only will you receive monthly newsletters, invitations to member events, opportunities for scholarships, but if you want to be more involved you will be able to volunteer or run for an Officer position. There are so many ways to be involved we look forward to starting this journey with you. [The Induction] It is now time to receive into membership these outstanding new members.
