MIILTON — Curry College is proud to announce that Allyson Colanino of Halifax, has been inducted into the Sigma Theta Tau International Nursing Honor Society.
Curry College’s Chapter, Theta at Large, began in 1953 when it was chartered as only the seventh Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau. A group of nurses attending Boston University set out to establish an organization that would represent the best of what nursing offered in this part of the world. Boston University would stand tall for the ensuing 37 years, as the “institution of record” for the Chapter, until 1990 when it was re-chartered to include Curry College in Milton, Mass., and Simmons College in Boston – thereby establishing an “at-large” distinction.
Today, the chapter has over 900 active members linked among three unique institutions. Theta at Large has many reasons to be proud as it forges into the new millennium.
We are active in supporting local nursing scholars through our ongoing research and academic awards program. Our fall and spring programs offer members an opportunity to connect with each other and engage in scholarly educational discourse. We are thrilled to routinely send members to destinations around this country and abroad, to leadership conferences, academic events, member forums, and the biennial convention during which representatives from all chapters from around the world gather.
