The School of Nursing Alumni Association (SNAA) is made up of over 10,000 individuals. 

Guided by an Advisory Council, the SNAA strives to increase the connections between alumni, the School of Nursing and each other through printed and electronic updates about the impact of the School of Nursing and its alumni on health and healthcare; mentoring, advising and job postings; social and educational gathering; and much more!

Increase your involvement in our nursing community by participating in your class reunion, attending or organizing an alumni event in your area, and by giving of your time, talent and treasure to help us advance the School of Nursing and the role of our profession in meeting the healthcare needs of the 21st century.
