Nursing Alumni

Nursing Alumni

Western's Nursing Alumni Chapter came together in 2005. The goal of the committee is to keep nursing alumni informed and engaged with the Arthur Labatt Family School of Nursing.

The Nursing Chapter hosts a number of social events each year including a Homecoming Brunch and a golf clinic. The chapter also participates in the Arthur Labatt Family School of Nursing Annual Research Conference.

Nursing Alumni of Distinction Award

The Nursing Alumni of Distinction Awards recognize significant contributions by an alumnus to the university community, the Arthur Labatt Family School of Nursing and nursing profession. The Awards are presented each year at the Nursing Homecoming Event.
