A Message from Alumni Board President

Dean Eileen Breslin hosted the Lifetime Member Dinner at Oak Hills Country Club. This special evening was an opportunity to recognize these members for their leadership and investment in our school. The evening was a great success as members shared their paths after graduation.

This winter, we hosted another Converse with a Nurse event. Alumna Laura Valdes, M.S.N., B.S.N. Class of 2000, RN, teamed up with Vanessa Meling, Ed.D., director of academic enhancement in our Student Success Center, to speak to nursing students about "Building a Professional Profile: Tips on Resumé Writing & Interview Skills." I'm proud to announce we kicked off our Alumni Mentorship Program this year. Alumni mentors have been connected with nursing students and are helping students navigate the transition into the professional workforce. If you would like to become a mentor, please contact Melissa Mireles at mirelesm4@uthscsa.edu.

Your involvement in our School of Nursing Alumni Association is imperative to its success. Please renew your membership or join us as a new member; your support ensures a bright future for your alma mater and the students following in our footsteps. Thank you for your continued friendship and support.

Odette V. Denisa, M.S.N., RN, ACNP-BC
President, School of Nursing Alumni Association
