I hope everyone is well and enjoying all that 2016 has to bring. We had quite a winter here on the East Coast with the epic snowstorm and welcome spring. Despite the winter doldrums, the alumni association stayed busy with activities including the student mentoring program, providing mock interviews for current students, participating in alumni and student panels, and welcoming the new MSN: Entry into Nursing students to campus. Our vision is to have our alumni engage even more frequently with the students, and we encourage your participation. The students look to us to provide them with our experiences and inspiration.
The JHNAA is partnering with the SON Admissions office to celebrate all nurses working at the Hopkins hospitals in the Baltimore/DC area during National Nurses Week. Last year’s events were well attended and all were most pleased with our participation. Please contact the alumni office if you would like more information on the events.
Sue Appling, ’73 and Jean Shulman, ’64 are working with archivist Phoebe Latocha to write a series of magazine articles to begin in the Summer 2016 issue surrounding Hopkins Nurses in WWI. Please contact the alumni office with your personal stories.
As you can see, there are many ways to be involved as a Hopkins Nurse. Please do not hesitate to contact myself or Erika Juengst in the alumni office if you want to join in the fun!
