Quote from FutureNurseInfo
I have been in one, and a bunch of other honors societies. For one I still get letters asking that I donate $$$. The others did not help finding or securing the job. All my employer cared about if I graduated and had my teaching license. But yeah, special tassels were nice. Though nobody cared.
Some individual STT chapters are v. active, and provide scholarships for members to further their education as well as good networking and mentoring opportunities (including re: job-hunting). There are places in the country where it does matter to employers whether someone is an STT member, and you never know when that might give you an edge over another applicant. In a lot of academic and leadership nursing jobs, it's an expectation that is practically a job requirement. But, for the most part, it's a personal choice.
