Beta Lambda Chapter of the Alpha Delta Nu National
Honor Society for Associate Degree Nursing at NPCC
This honor society was originally founded in the state of Illinois and, with the support of the National Organization for Associate Degree Nursing (NOADN) Executive Board, it recently became a national society. In July 2013, National Park Community College RN Program was chartered with the Beta Lambda Chapter of the Alpha Delta Nu National Honor Society for Associate Degree Nursing. Janice Ivers, RN Program Director and Honor Society Faculty Advisor, said, "It is without hesitation that I support and facilitate this chapter for our nursing students at National Park Community College. These students are among a distinguished group of nursing students who have met or exceeded rigorous standards and have demonstrated the ideal qualities of a scholar."
A requirement for full membership was to sponsor one educational or recruitment project during the provisional membership period prior to the induction ceremony. Upon completion of the project, and by maintaining the academic requirements, fifteen senior students were officially inducted into the honor society on March 14, 2014. Family, faculty, NPCC administrators, and friends who attended this event shared in the student accomplishments. Janice Ivers stated, "This event was to honor the students as new members of the Alpha Delta Nu and to support them as they begin their journey of continued nursing excellence, the pursuit of advanced degrees in the profession of nursing, and the commitment to continuing education as a life-long professional responsibility." She said the students were challenged to frame this induction as a beginning – a beginning of thinking differently about themselves, their impact, and their contribution to the profession and to health care globally.
The students received a certificate, an Alpha Delta Nu Honor Society Pin, and peach honors cords at the event.
