Sydney Nursing School welcomes a lifelong connection between graduates and the School through ongoing communications and social and educational events.
Our alumni are leaders in the fields of nursing and midwifery in Australia and overseas. They are an integral part of the significant international network of our School and the University of Sydney.
As a graduate, your participation in our alumni community also means a lot to our current students who are looking for role models as they study, and in turn, become leaders and professionals in their chosen fields.
Instead of throwing an annual Christmas party, Sydney Nursing School alumni celebrate Christmas by doing something for others.
See what happens when 500 people, including alumni, staff, students, friends, industry partners and more, come together in support of those who are less fortunate than ourselves.

Thank you to all of you who participated in our Packing Day for the Homeless. The Great Hall was full of enthusiasm and energy. If you missed out, read about this hugely successful annual event and have a look at some of the great pics of the day.
You can already register your interest for next year's Packing Day. Also, if you'd like to make a donation towards the kits, just $8 will provide vital supplies for our kitbags. Right now a donation will put a little toy into a kid's kitbag for Christmas.
ANNUAL DEAN'S GALA DINNER AND CHALLENGE 2013

This year's challenge, hosted by comedian Alan Glover, was a battle of wits and knowledge across three teams from different generations, taking on thought-provoking questions, tasks and challenges relating to nursing and health care over the last 50 years.

Sydney Nursing School alumni, students, staff and friends came together as volunteers in the University's Great Hall for the annual Birthing Kit Day event, which is now one of the largest of its kind in Australia. During a fun-packed morning,
5000 kits were assembled, to be sent to help pregnant women in central Africa deliver their babies in safe and clean environments.

On Thursday 27 September Sydney Nursing School held its Inaugural Dean's Alumni and Friends Gala Dinner and Debate in the Great Hall. The debate Super-specialisation of health services benefits the health professionals, not patients was entertaining, with evenly weighted arguments from both sides. The Opposition won by a narrow margin, thanks to a certain theatrical flair. View the photo gallery and have a look at the video highlights from the night (2:00mins, 11MB). Watch the whole debate.
Our Alumni Workplace Mentors are trained and ready! They are volunteers from a variety of nursing backgrounds who are happy to share their knowledge and experience with newly registered nurses. Their support helps boost the morale and confidence of students and new graduates moving into the workforce for the first time.
If you're interested in connecting with a mentor, you can look at the profiles of our mentors, and email the mentor of your choice.
ALUMNI MENTOR TRAINING
Our first Alumni Mentor Training day was held on Thursday 26 July 2012, here at Sydney Nursing School. It was wonderful getting to know our mentors and our mentors getting to know each other, ready for the first group of students to enter the workforce and call on their experience and knowledge. Every mentor is passionate about offering support to new nurses, remembering what it was like to transition from study to the work environment. We are all very excited about this mentor program!
