Alumni & friends

Joining together, for a world of good

The UW School of Nursing has been educating generations of nurses since we offered our first bachelor of science in nursing degree in 1923. Our alumni have gone onto become leaders in public policy, visionaries in scientific research, faculty members at top-institutions and expert partners in healthcare teams. We are proud of our #HuskyNurse alumni who are making a difference in people’s lives every day.

When our alumni join together with our students and faculty, you are helping our mission to advance nursing science and practice through generating knowledge and educating future leaders to address health for all.


Whether you are Class of 1945 or 2022, we invite you to engage with our UW School of Nursing community. Explore the links below to learn more about how you can get involved and stay involved.
