Dear Penn Nursing Alumni,
No matter what your current profession may be, whether you are a stay at home mom, practicing in a clinical setting, educating future leaders, or researching new modes of care, your Penn Nursing education continues to have a significant influence on both your personal and professional lives. Our time at the School taught us to be bold and innovative thinkers, who realize the tremendous value of partnerships and teamwork.
As I assume the presidency of the Alumni Board, I am focused on strengthening our partnerships with both fellow alumni and the School. Our alumni, from bachelor's graduates to former doctoral students to HUP alumni, continue to effect new developments and improvements in global healthcare. We remain an important resource for one another as we strive to deliver Care to Change the World!
There are many ways for alumni to stay connected to Penn Nursing. You may want to volunteer as a preceptor for students, be a panel member during Homecoming, mentor current students, give to the Annual Fund, be the class representative for your reunion during Alumni Weekend, or talk with students about job opportunities and interview skills.
Alumni leadership and support play as crucial a role in the growth of current Penn Nursing students as the School's outstanding faculty. Our contributions help ensure the ongoing success of Penn Nursing's education and practice and the advancement of its scholars.
I encourage each of you to continue your impact on the future of nursing by reconnecting with your fellow alumni and the School. The Penn Nursing Alumni Board is here for YOU - to help you stay involved and catch up with your classmates and friends. Please explore this website to find information on upcoming events, new initiatives at the School, and stories from our alumni around the world. I hope to see and hear from many of you in the months to come, as we build an even stronger and more engaged community!
If you have thoughts, suggestions or even questions, I'd like to hear from you. Please contact me at email@example.com.
Terri Cox Glassen, Nu'91
