Where in the World are UWM Nurses?

The first class of nurses graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee College of Nursing in 1969.  With more than 7,137 graduates, the UWM Nursing Alumni Board is interested in finding out just where ARE all of the UWM nurses?

Whether you’re in Paris, Chicago, or over at Columbia St. Mary’s- we want to know where YOU are and what you are doing!  Tell us about you!

In return for your updated information, we’ll send you a picture of Pounce (our mascot) wearing the UWM College of Nursing pin.  Take Pounce with you to work and on your travels, add him into photos and videos of yourself and other UWM alums showing off your work.   Send the photos and videos to welsh@uwm.edu and they will be posted on Facebook and on the College of Nursing Alumni web page for all to see. 

Where in the World are UWM Nurses? Kick-off Event

 Milwaukee and around the World! 

The UWM College of Nursing Alumni Board want to give UWM nurses more opportunities to hear and share good things about their school and their work.  The Board would like to host a series of informal learning and networking events starting next month.  We will start at UWM but hope to travel to visit other locations and hear about what people are doing.
