Cizik School of Nursing Alumni

lass of 2020

Cizik School of Nursing Alumni Network

Cizik School of Nursing is proud of the more than 12,000 alumni who are making a difference in the field of nursing locally and abroad. The connection to the School of Nursing does not end at graduation, and it is our goal to keep our alumni actively engaged just as much in their professional careers as when they were students. There are a myriad of ways to get involved and stay connected, such as:

  • Attending social events like the Alumni Meet and Mingle events, 
  • Connecting with the School of Nursing on Facebook, Indeed, Youtube, Yelp, or Foursquare,
  • Getting involved and becoming a part of the alumni volunteer program to provide mentorship to students interested in nursing school or looking at careers after nursing school, or 
  • Donating gifts to the School for scholarships or awards. 

It is our sincere hope that the experiences created as students carry forward into active alumni membership.

Alumni Traditions at CSON: Pancake Breakfast

47052435_589416441486713_7987930904683085824_nThe Pancake Breakfast was created in 2017 by the CSON Alumni Association as a way to support and engage with current students. Co-sponsored by the Office of Alumni Affairs, the free event serves up breakfast starting at 7:00 a.m. to students who are about to enter their final exams. Since it has been created, the Pancake Breakfast has received praise from students with many noting that it is one of their favorite times of the year. Roughly 100 students attend each semester and are treated to freshly made pancakes, bacon, and scrambled eggs, along with fruit, cereal, coffee and tea. 

The fall Pancake Breakfast was held on November 18 and was a success due to the support from our our alumni volunteers. Special thanks to this year's volunteers including Cathy Henning, BSN '77, John Cook, BSN '12, PMC '16 & '18 , Chinwendu Ufomadu, BSN '16, Shanea Hall, MSN '16, Alan Lim, BSN '14, Ody Ezeigwe, BSN '15, Catherine Chen, BSN '18.
