School of Nursing
Alumni Chapter

The HSC Tower at Stony Brook

Welcome, School of Nursing Alums!

Dear School of Nursing Grads,

Serving as President of the Stony Brook School of Nursing Alumni Board for the past two years has been both gratifying and challenging. Our mission has always been to build a strong and lasting relationship with our present and future alums by providing support for our current students and advancing the interests of professionalism in Nursing. With the support of the Board members many goals have been met.

Over the past two years we have:

  • Continued to expand and strengthen the "Lunch and Learn" program, a bi-annual event for students that first addresses stress and relaxation and then transitioning from the role of the student to the role of a professional nurse.
  • Developed a mentoring program to support new graduates as they navigate the demanding role of practicing as a professional nurse.
  • Created an inaugural e-Newsletter which will address topics of interest for both the student and the alumni with a number of photos. (We think you will be pleased with its presentation!)
  • Collaborated with the Department of Continuing Education to present an educational opportunity to earn continuing education credits. We plan on this being a bi-annual event.

But we still need you to get involved!

School of Nursing Alumni Mentoring Program

Members of the School of Nursing Alumni Board will mentor Stony Brook School of Nursing recent graduates (graduates of the last five years) as part of the School of Nursing Alumni Mentoring Program. The volunteer alumni mentors are 'assigned' a mentee, who has been selected for the program, in order to provide meaningful support, increase the grad's knowledge of the occupation and ease their transition from nursing school to career.

Are you an alum who is interested in volunteering? Are you a student who wants to connect with an alumni volunteer?

If you have any questions, please contact Mary Hoffmann at 631-632-4995 or mary.hoffmann@stonybrook.edu.
