About Honor Society

Recognition. Distinction. Become a "Fellow".

Fellows are recognized with the highest membership honor for their exceptional work and altruistic impact upon society.

Nurses that have made very significant contributions to society and who exemplify nursing excellence can become a permanent member of the "College of Fellows".

Only three (3) percent of our 180,000 nurse members have this distinction. Consider becoming a "Fellow". This important designation speaks to your significant contribution to society and highlights your commitment to nursing. The National Honor Society inducts "Fellows" annually.

The National Honor Society aims to encourage the development of altruism and social responsibility in nursing. Registered Nurses that have made significant and sweeping contributions to society that exemplify nursing excellence can become permanent "Fellows" of the National Honor Society.

Through your membership, activities, volunteer works, achievements, and altruistic contributions to Society you can earn distinction as a 'Fellow".  

Fellows receive an award, a certificate, honorable mention in our publlifations and a permanent place in our "College of Fellows". You can use the "Fellow" title, folloing your name. New "Fellows" are keynote speakers at the Annual Induction Ceremony.
