UWAANC Capstone Mentoring

The semester started out with a presentation to our senior students regarding the newly created UWAANC Capstone Mentoring Program. The goal of the program is to provide social support and assist in the transition from nursing student to professional nurse. It was thrilling that the senior students were interested in this new program. We checked in by email at mid-semester and both the students and the mentors had all positive comments.

  • Mentor comment: “I’ve just loved being her mentor. Thanks for the opportunity.”

  • Student comments:

    • “Meeting with my capstone mentor has been really helpful and makes me excited for post graduate life as a nurse!”

    • “This mentor program is a great idea to help capstone be more comfortable! Thank you!”

    • “It is nice to have a resource who has just recently gone through the job search and taking the boards. Thanks!”

    • “She is a great mentor and has given me loads of advice about new grad programs, NCLEX prep and registration, and has eased my anxieties about graduating tons. I love that you started implementing this! Thanks!”

So it sounds like our initial capstone mentoring program has been a success! Another evaluation will be done at the end of the semester. We are in need of more mentors throughout Wyoming, northern Colorado, and Scottsbluff, Nebraska. If interested in being a capstone mentor, please contact us at uwnursingalumni@uwyo.edu.


Presentation to UWAA

The UW Alumni Association Board has invited us to speak at their board meeting on April 12. We are honored and excited to do a presentation about our Nursing Chapter. Our board is very proud of what we are doing and happy to share our progress with them.


Information flyer and bylaws

We created an informational flyer regarding the benefits of becoming a member of UWAANC, which has been extremely helpful in promoting our chapter. In addition to that document, our bylaws were revised and updated this spring. Click on the above hyperlinks if you are interested in viewing either or both documents.


Events upcoming!

We are looking forward to the events in the fall including:

  • Homecoming Meet and Greet (Fri., Oct 18, 2019, 4-6 p.m., HS Center Atrium)

  • Homecoming 1979 Nursing Class Reunion!

  • Nursing & Health Professions Career Fair (date will be set by mid-May)

  • Resume Blitz (will start on the career fair date above)

  • Speed Mentoring (date soon to be set!)

  • Mock Interviews: Planning is in progress to implement mock interviews later in the fall before our senior students leave on their capstone experience.

Please contact us at uwnursingalumni@uwyo.edu if interested in joining our chapter, being on the board, or participating in any of the above-listed events or programs.

Let us know if you want to get involved! We look forward to working with you...

- Holly Miller, Co-President UWAANC
