A Retirement to Remember


On June 15, after four decades of service to The Johns Hopkins University, The Johns Hopkins Hospital Department of Nursing, and the Johns Hopkins Nurses’ Alumni Association, Sandra (Sandy) Angell, School of Nursing associate dean for student affairs, retired.

Angell—who received her Diploma in Nursing from The Johns Hopkins Hospital, her Bachelor of Science and Master of Liberal Arts from The Johns Hopkins University, and the Heritage Award from the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association— has been part of the admissions team since shortly after the School of Nursing opened in 1984. During retirement, says Angell, she plans to spend more time with her mother, husband, children, and grandchildren (“two and counting!”).

    You will be missed so very much!!! Thank you again for making this year possible for me to survive. You deserve all your mornings of sleeping in!
