The School of Nursing proudly counts as alumni nearly 9,000 living graduates worldwide who hold a degree, diploma, or certificate of program completion from the School. Our first graduates received diplomas from the University of Virginia Hospital School of Nursing in 1903, long before women were admitted to the College. By the late 1960s all graduates were receiving baccalaureate degrees. Today, our alumni represent a wide variety of degrees, certificates, and specialties.
U.Va. Nursing alumni are highly loyal to the School, and they maintain close relationships with the School and with each other. Graduates automatically become members of the Nursing Alumni Association (no dues are required) which works hand-in-hand with the School of Nursing Alumni & Development Office.
