Alumni Association

Welcome to the Helene Fuld College of Nursing Alumni Association!

The Alumni Association was developed to promote lifelong relationships. The Association provides opportunities for graduates to remain connected to the College through networking, mentoring, participation in professional organizations, and to provide an avenue for feedback and generation of ideas that will support the mission and vision of the College.

Members support events within the College and community and serve to strengthen the profession by “paying it forward” for future nurses through mentorship. There are several ways to become an active member. The alumni association has been involved in open houses/recruitment, reunions, commencement and fund-raising efforts.
