Happy Spring! Many of us have endured the long cold days of winter, but the JHNAA has been hustling with activity to bring alumni and students together. Alumni networking events have been held in Scottsdale, AZ in January; Naples and Palm Beach, FL in February; and New York City, Boston, and Chicago in March. Several of these events also gave JHNAA the opportunity to help recruit new students.
Here in Baltimore, alumni career panels and mock interviews have been held with great success. Thanks to all who were able to participate!
Be ready this June to celebrate the groundbreaking for the new School of Nursing building project. There will be more to come on how you can participate. Join Kathy Hopkins and the class of ’62 with their fundraising activity for the project.
I am very excited to tell you that through the June C. Persson ’59 Alumni Lectureship Program, JHNAA has invited Anne Marie Rafferty—the first professor of nursing policy in the UK and former dean at Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery, King’s College London—to attend Alumni Weekend (October 4-6). She is an expert in workforce research and policy in health care as well as a historian on Florence Nightingale.
Your journey in nursing may have taken you across the country and around the globe, but you’re never more than a click away with the new Johns Hopkins Nursing Alumni Association Facebook page.
The alumni association is looking forward to celebrating Nurse’s Week, May 6-12. We will hold events throughout the Johns Hopkins Health System featuring our amazing alumni. If you would like to participate in any of these activities, contact Katie Damaroda: firstname.lastname@example.org.
