The UMFK Nursing Honor Society was formed in the spring of 1998 for the purpose of recognizing and fostering academic excellence and scholarship among nursing students, alumni, and community leaders.
The Honor Society holds two scholarly events each year in an effort to promote nursing scholarship in the St. John Valley and Aroostook County. Participation in the scholarly activities is not limited to members of the honor society.
