I hope you are all looking forward to a great summer! I recently looked at all the photos my fellow alums submitted this past year for the “Where in the World is the Nursing Pin?” challenge, and I must say, we are a well-traveled group! I plan on taking a photo of myself with the Maltese cross pin in Alaska this summer, and hope you will do the same during your travels. Don’t forget to send the photos to Lindsay Dorrance (LDorran1@jhu.edu) so we can display them at Alumni Weekend.
As many of us know from experience, a positive relationship with a mentor can make a great difference in our personal and professional lives. The Alumni Association has sponsored an alumni-student mentorship program for the past few years, but we need your help taking it to the next level. If you currently have a mentee, reach out to them and ask if they’d like to have coffee or talk on the phone. If you’re not a part of the mentorship program, get in touch with us today and we will pair you with a student.
I hope you have all marked September 26-28 on your calendars for Alumni Weekend. It’s going to be an exceptional weekend filled with great activities such as tours of the new hospital, a simulation activity, and even an off-campus run; as well as old favorites such as the alumni luncheon! I hope to see you there.
