The purpose of the Society shall be to stimulate the interest of all graduates and former students of the School of Nursing, graduates of the Ball Memorial Hospital School of Nursing, and graduates and former students of other divisions of the university who are or have been actively engaged in nursing so that the Society may be able to further the educational, professional, and social interests individually and collectively by:

  • Developing a wider acquaintance and fellowship between the members of the Society who are working in the field and the faculty of the School of Nursing.
  • Providing a clearing house for the presentation of problems pertaining to nursing and requests for services to the mutual benefit of the faculty and alumni.
  • Encouraging a greater devotion and respect for the high standards which the School of Nursing has established for itself and working toward a more universal recognition of the importance of nursing in the culture of this country.
