A Rich History

On January 22, 1915, the first group of nurses, nine young ladies, graduated with an impressive ceremony in the school lecture hall, after which they returned to their wards and patients. Graduates received their black bands in their senior year and their pins, diplomas, and a beautiful bouquet of red roses at a graduation ceremony.

Membership

Membership in the Alumnae is contingent on payment of the annual membership fee. All St. Joseph's School of Nursing graduates from the classes of 1915 to 1978 are granted eligibility for active alumnae membership.

Our Constitution

The Constitution is the agreed-upon plan of action that provides the Executive and Alumnae members with important principles that give stability and continuity to the ongoing operations of the Association.
