Beyond graduation

We proudly count nearly 11,600 living graduates worldwide who hold a degree, diploma or certificate from the School of Nursing.

Our first graduates earned diplomas in 1903, long before women were admitted to UVA. By the late 1960s, all graduates were receiving baccalaureate degrees. Today, our alumni represent a wide variety of degrees, certificates and specialties.

Alumni are tremendously loyal to the School—just as we are to them. After graduation, you maintain close relationships with us and with your colleagues. Graduates automatically become members of the School of Nursing Alumni Association (SONAA), which works closely with the School of Nursing Alumni and Development Office.

Reconnect with us through an event or reunion, and share your news with us. Additionally, consider giving back to support future generations of top-notch health care practitioners.
