Alumni Community Week

We invite all Johns Hopkins School of Nursing alumni and the nursing community to join us for Alumni Community Week, September 26 – September 30, 2022. Programming will include both in-person and virtual events.

The schedule of events

  • New Nurse Mentoring Meet-Up (virtual) - Wednesday, September 28th

    New Nurse Mentoring Meet-Up (virtual)
    Wednesday, September 28th | 6-7pm ET

    Beginning your first job as a new nurse can be daunting. To help ease the transition, increase confidence, and nurture the unique leadership qualities of all Hopkins Nurses, we will be hosting a virtual mentorship event for alumni from the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) Entry into Nursing program. Geared towards new nurses, we are asking for alumni who graduated from the MSN (Entry) program in 2017-2019 to offer their guidance to more recent alumni from the program (2020-2022).

    This mentorship opportunity will be a virtual event and will only require a one-hour time commitment. Each mentor will be paired with a recent graduate. During the virtual interaction over Zoom, mentors are encouraged to listen, support, advise, and assist their mentee with the transition to becoming a nurse.

    Register by Friday, September 16th to participate.

    Cocktails & Conversations (in-person)
    Achieving Health Equity through Shared Decision Making
    Friday, September 30th | 6-8pm ET

    Nurses are critical to solving our most pressing and persistent health challenges. The social reckoning, ongoing pandemic, and other health inequities have highlighted opportunities for nurse leaders, clinicians, and researchers to drive structural changes for their unique contexts. Responding to evolving imperatives of the nursing profession, this event will explore the role of nurses in promoting equity in shared decision making to drive health outcomes and dismantle practices that perpetuate racism and oppression.

    Attendees will enjoy cocktails and refreshments as they engage in a peer dialogue about ways to integrate principles of social justice into nursing practice and health policy in one of the following discussions:
    1.    Breaking Down Structures that Perpetuate Racism and Affect Health Outcomes
    2.    Multi-Level Interventions to Address Social Determinants of Health across the Lifespan
    3.    Holistic Approaches to Advance Health Outcomes across the Lifespan
