UWAA Nursing Chapter

January 13, 2017
Alum Emily Hill
Emily Hill

Greetings! I am Emily Hill, a 2013 B.S.N. graduate of the UW Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing. I work at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, N.Y., as a hematology, oncology and bone marrow transplant R.N. and am pursuing my adult-gerontology acute care D.N.P. at Winona State University. I am writing to you as president of the UW Alumni Association Nursing Chapter (UWAANC). Being involved in this chapter has allowed me an outlet through which to express my tremendous gratitude for an amazing education.

The UW Alumni Association Nursing Chapter was formed by a development board in 2014, launching the official chapter in the spring of 2015. We are excited to be celebrating the first full year serving alumni and students. Our main goals this year have been to foster membership and support students. In accordance with those goals, we enjoyed hosting the following events this past March.

“Speed Mentoring” session for students: During this session, we had six nurses represent different nursing specialties, providing one-on-one mentoring to students. The specialties addressed and the nurses involved were: emergency room (Marilyn Hall), geriatrics (Pete Skorcz), hematology/oncology/bone marrow transplant (Emily Hill), labor and delivery (Elaine Volin), pediatrics (Elizabeth DePrince) and public health (Darcey Cowardin).

“Résumé Blitz”: This event helped students prepare for summer internships and job applications. Two UW nursing alumni who have held leadership roles in nursing—Karleen Goerke and Jeanine Niemoller—reviewed the resumes electronically.

It is our hope that such exciting opportunities to assist and encourage the next generation of nurses will help us foster our membership. We would love to talk to you about the benefits of joining UWAANC and how you can be part of one of our events in the future.
