Pediatric nurse, university administrator and past STTI president, Patricia E. Thompson, EdD, RN, FAAN, leads the honor society during a period of unprecedented global expansion. She directs the 134,000-member organization as it moves boldly to develop nurse leaders around the world.
Dr. Thompson became STTI's chief executive officer from her position as associate dean for academic programs at the College of Nursing, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.
Her clinical career began as a pediatric staff nurse at Schumpert Medical Center in Shreveport, La., USA. In the early 1970s, she obtained her BSN from Northwestern State University (Natchitoches, La., USA), and an MSN in Pediatrics from the University of Alabama in Birmingham (Birmingham, Ala., USA). In the early 1980s, she returned to the classroom and earned her EdD in Higher Education Administration and a minor in Business Management from the University of North Texas (Denton, Texas, USA).
Dr. Thompson, an STTI member for more than 30 years, has served in many volunteer leadership roles, including president (1999-2001). She is passionate about the honor society and believes the organization accomplishes its goals.
"I've belonged to a lot of different organizations inside and outside of nursing. Many spend a lot of time talking and planning, but they rarely get to the implementation phase," Dr. Thompson says. "The honor society plans strategically, and then moves its members into action," she adds.
"It is an exciting time to be a member of the honor society, when our leadership, scholarship and knowledge offerings are the pinnacle of professional development for the nurses and global communities they serve," Dr. Thompson says.

"Balancing Your Volunteer and Professional Passions" was the theme of Thursday's plenary presentation by Patricia E. Thompson, EdD, RN, FAAN, chief executive officer of the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI). The plenary opened the second day of 2014 Leadership Connection, a four-day educational program hosted by the honor society in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. Thompson's inspirational story of achievements and failures in her own journey as a volunteer resonated with attendees. Her pursuit of leadership opportunities in STTI sometimes led to disappointment. The first time she ran for president of her local chapter, she lost, but she was elected on her second try. Then she submitted her name as a candidate for regional coordinator but was not selected for the ballot. Thompson persisted in volunteering for various honor society tasks and eventually was asked to write the region's newsletter. At first she didn't relish that position, but it led to networking opportunities. Ultimately, she was elected regional coordinator, followed by terms as second vice president, vice president, president-elect and, finally, honor society president for the 1999-2001 term. Risk-taking and persistence are important traits in achieving success, Thompson said.
Pat Thompson and attendees Several years after being elected STTI president, Thompson once again experienced great disappointment when she was passed over for a position as dean, which had long been her career goal. She had never envisioned serving as a CEO. But when Nancy Dickenson-Hazard retired as the honor society's CEO, the search committee encouraged Thompson to apply because of her extensive volunteer experience and her passion for STTI.
