Message from the Chair
Hello and Welcome Nursing Alumni! My name is Monica Perry, Class of 2004. Both Dr. Karen Daley and I have organized the first ever Nursing Alumni organization at WestConn, called the WCSU Alumni Nursing Society. We are a chapter of the WCSU Alumni Association. This newly established society is vital in maintaining the excellence of Nursing at the university and helping the program to advance its leadership in nursing education.
There are many reasons for alumni to stay in touch and involved. Keep your lifelong relationship with WestConn a strong one. We encourage you to:
- Update your contact information and share news with fellow alumni.
- Stay up-to-date with our news.
- Attend university and alumni events.
- Encourage the next generation of WestConn nurses through your experiences.
- Continue your education with us.
Membership in the WCSU Alumni Nursing Society will help provide funding for a career mentoring program, establishing additional nursing scholarships, publishing the nursing newsletter and planning an annual get-together for alums and their families.
WestConn has produced many great nurses throughout its many years. The Alumni Nursing Society hopes to be an organization that will help past alumni connect with new alumni, and help alumni connect with the nursing program. We hope to organize educational seminars, have meetings throughout the year and be involved in fundraising to develop the nursing program at WestConn and to offer scholarships to nursing students. The Alumni Nursing Society hopes to provide the nursing lab with state of the art equipment that will provide the great learning opportunities to students.
We greatly encourage anyone who is interested in helping us develop this alumni organization email me at Monissa28@sbcglobal.net. I strongly believe the Alumni Nursing Society will develop into a great organization. I look forward in meeting you all soon.
