Alumni Spotlights

Our alumni are outstanding individuals who contribute to their professions, communities and families in amazing and important ways, and we want students to learn from such role models.

The Alumni Discovery Project is an innovative outreach effort to engage our alumni in active dialogue with students through in-person interviews. The project also serves to connect alumni with current students to give alumni insight on what's changed and what nursing school is like today.

If you're an alumnus, sign up to participate by submitting your contact information. If selected, a student ambassador will contact you to set up an interview.
