Honorary Membership


Since 1939, Sigma has bestowed honorary membership upon individuals of national or global influence who have furthered the course of healthcare. Honorary membership is conferred by Sigma’s Board of Directors on those who demonstrate superior achievement in a chosen field and a special commitment to the ideals and concerns of nursing.


Honorary membership is granted to individuals throughout the world who are not eligible for regular membership but have demonstrated sustained superior achievements that have contributed to the advancement of nursing and healthcare at the national or global levels.
Any active Sigma member or chapter may nominate an individual for honorary membership.
