On International Nurses Day on Thursday 12 May 2022 (Florence Nightingale’s birthday) the Adelaide Nursing School launched the Adelaide Nursing School Alumni Network (ANSAN).
More than 60 nursing alumni, staff, and industry guests attended the launch event, enjoying drinks and canapés in the Adelaide Health and Medical Sciences building.
The event was officially opened by Professor Andrew Zannettino Pro Vice-Chancellor (Health Partnerships) with Associate Professor Frank Donnelly Dean and Head of Adelaide Nursing School and President of ANSAN, the MC for the evening.
Guests were treated to presentations from Associate Professor Lesley Long AM, who spoke about the transformation of Adelaide Nursing School from its early beginnings and Professor Lesley Dwyer, who spoke about future careers nursing in changing healthcare systems.
The launch was a great opportunity to meet and mingle with ANSAN Committee members and hear about their plans to support the nursing alumni community. We hope to make these networking events a regular addition to the calendar. Congratulations to everyone involved.
Graduates of Adelaide Nursing School automatically become members of the Adelaide Nursing Alumni Network, if you would like to become involved or know more about the Network, please email Linda Kinsella.
