Help Us Support Current and Future Nurses

Help us assist the next generation of nurses with programs like UNLV's Nursing Camp.

 

 

About us:

We are the Nursing Chapter of the Alumni Association at UNLV.  We foster relationships between students, alumni, and faculty of the university through events, volunteerism, learning opportunities and awards.  In addition we are dedicated to helping alumni and students improve their patient's health outcomes.  We stand ready to assist current and future alumni in their work.  We are open to all graduates of the UNLV School of Nursing. The chapter is currently led by Board of Directors' President Rustin Park, MSN, RN-BC, NEA-BC ’09.

 

What we need:

The Nursing Chapter of the Alumni Association is looking for your support to help grow our Community Engagement Fund.  As the School of Nursing expands its alumni program we are reaching out to you.  As some of you may know, the class size at our school is increasing in the next few years.  This increase in size will require students who are motivated to become the next generation of UNLV nurses to represent us in the healthcare field.  Let's give them a head start by helping make programs like nurse camp a success while also allowing UNLV students to earn a world class education regardless of their financial situation. 

 

Community Engagement Fund Spotlight:

We would like to bring your attention to one of the programs run through our Engagement Fund, the UNLV Nurse Camp.  Our camp seeks to foster and encourage junior and senior high school students interested in a nursing career. Students will be exposed to academic, clinical, and community activities in order to develop realistic expectations about nursing school and working as a registered nurse.  The curriculum will include:

  • CPR & First Aid Training

  • UNLV Admissions ACT Preparation

  • Shadow a Nurse at UMC Hospital

  • Stop the Bleed Training

  • CSCLV Skills Training

  • A Roundtable Q&A with Nurses

  • Recognition Ceremony

 

Why are we asking for your help:

There are so many reasons to give to the School of Nursing. At some point, each of us—and our spouses, parents, children, and other loved ones—will be touched or even saved by a nurse’s care. Your gift ensures the continued excellence and impact of the number one nursing school in Southern Nevada, helping us prepare the next great generation of caregivers.  Your donation will make a difference for both current and future nursing students.
