Alumni Association

Organized by the Class of 1895, the University of Maryland School of Nursing (UMSON) Alumni Association is the oldest continuously active nursing alumni association in the nation.

The purpose of the Alumni Association is to unite all UMSON graduates and to support the students and faculty in advancing UMSON and its mission. Members of the Alumni Association foster and promote the general welfare of UMSON; advocate for public and private support for the benefit of UMSON; and provide educational, charitable, and cultural activities for the benefit of UMSON alumni, students, and friends. Read our bylaws.

As an all-inclusive membership organization, any person who has received a diploma or a degree from UMSON is automatically a member of the Alumni Association. There is no membership fee!
