Welcome Back Alumni & Friends
Welcome to the Northeastern University School of Nursing’s 50thAnniversary website!
Dear Alumni, Parents, and Friends.
What an extraordinary evening we enjoyed on Saturday, November 2, 2013 honoring 50 years of nursing education at Northeastern University. Your involvement in this special celebration will long be remembered and marks a wonderful milestone for Northeastern’s School of Nursing. We had several goals for the 50th Anniversary including engaging our alumni, parents and friends in the life of the School today, learning about the many achievements of our alumni since their days as students at Northeastern and bringing together a broad interdisciplinary audience in which the profession of nursing was at the center. It was our distinct pleasure to honor Sharon Gale, ADN’69, MSN, BSN’81, FAAN, Chief Executive Officer, Organization of Nurse Leaders, as our Distinguished Alumna Awardee, Jane Aroian, RN, MSN, EdD'86,, Associate Professor and Coordinator BSN to MS Program as our Distinguished Faculty Awardee and Jeanette Ives Erickson, RN, DNP, FAAN, Chief Nurse and Senior Vice President for Patient Care Services at Massachusetts General Hospital as our Distinguished Health Care Professional.
The photographs from the evening tell the most beautiful story of what was achieved as do the many messages that we received before the event and those that many of your wrote and placed with our School of Nursing 50th Anniversary Husky on Saturday night! Thank you for your participation in this momentous occasion. It is our hope that you will continue to participate actively in our work going forward and we look forward to providing you with regular updates highlighting what is happening in our School of Nursing.
