Class of 1949
Dear VUSN alumni,
I hope that you are planning to join me, fellow alumni, faculty and staff at the Vanderbilt University School of Nursing Reunion October 9–11, 2014, in Nashville, Tennessee. Reunion is the perfect time to catch up with old friends, see what’s new at the school and reconnect with people who have shared in your life.
The VUSN Reunion format is different this year and ALL alumni are invited. Opportunities for continuing education credit will include a pharmacology update for advanced practice nurses and a forum that is focused on how nurses are shaping the future of health care. The Vanderbilt University Undergraduate Reunion will be occurring at the same time, so the campus will be full of excitement, especially with the Commodores coming off a winning season and a new football coach at the helm.
I also hope that you will consider making a gift in honor of your Reunion. Reunion gifts support the VUSN Alumni Association Scholarship Fund and help ease the financial burden for deserving students. Because of the generosity of nursing alumni like you, gifts received during Reunion 2013 provided much-needed scholarship support for three current nursing students. Please give and carry on this Reunion tradition—this is your year to make a difference!
Thank you for all that you do for Vanderbilt University School of Nursing—I look forward to seeing you in October.
Cindy Waller, MSN’97, PhD’11
