Greetings to all. The dog days of summer have certainly not slowed down the JHNAA Board. The Student/Alumni Committee has been busy planning ways to connect with the nursing students while they are on campus in order to keep them involved beyond graduation. In the coming months, we will be inviting student group leaders along with students from the different degree programs to our board meetings so that they may have an opportunity to learn more about the Alumni
Association. We are also excited about attending functions at the SON as we know the students like to hear from the alumni. A calendar of events will be placed on the JHNAA webpage for those who would like to join in on the events.
The board had a special guest presentation at our last meeting—Nyuma Harrison, from Career Services. She spoke on her role and how she assists students in reviewing their resumes, cover letters, and helps them to identify best work environments through coaching activities. We talked about how JHNAA could collaborate with Career Services to connect with students and provide insight on our journeys and also provide assistance in resume reviews. Please contact Erika Juengst if you are interested in participating in this type of event.
We are gearing up for Alumni Weekend and very excited about new event offerings. In celebration of World War I centenary events there will be a WWI nursing presentation, and we will be hosting our first fall festival as an East Baltimore community event. Of course, we will also be honoring the 50-year Class of 1966! There is something for everyone, so we hope to see you there.
We are fortunate to be alumni of the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, a globally recognized leader in nursing education, research, and practice and ranking #1 nationally among graduate schools of nursing and #2 for DNP programs, according to U.S. News & World Report. With over 8,000 alumni across the globe, we are impacting nursing care across the world. We invite you to support future nurses through a gift to the school, and through participation in local, regional, student, and alumni events!
