Nursing Honor Society adds 33 new members
Brandman University’s Nursing Honor Society inducted 12 of its 33 new members in a ceremony on May 20 in Irvine. Because Brandman’s nursing classes are taught online and reach students across the nation and the globe, only a portion could be at the ceremony.
“You are among a distinguished group of nursing students, graduates and professionals who have met or exceeded standards and have demonstrated the ideal qualities of leader and scholar,” said Vashti Mapp, president of the honor society.
Marybelle and S. Paul Musco School of Nursing and Health Professions Dean Tyke Hanisch, DNP, told the inductees and their families that becoming honor society members makes them part of a worldwide community of nurses. “Please remember that your membership is more than recognition for your academic or professional success – it is an experience that you create throughout your career through honor, community service and innovative solutions.”
The new members and their families were treated to a buffet luncheon and a keynote address by James Morgan, DNP. The Brandman alumnus and faculty member talked about the steps that come after earning a doctorate degree.
Each new member received a maroon honor society cord and a certificate. Together they read the society’s pledge to commit to “nursing excellence, knowledge, service and leadership” throughout their careers.
