Welcome WCSU Nursing Alumni! My name is Dr. Monica Perry Sousa, RN, BSN, Class of 2004; ACNS-BC, APRN, Class of 2010 and Ed.D., Class of 2016; Chair of WCSU Alumni Nursing Society. Both Lois Crucitti, RN, BSN, Class of 1971; MSN, Class of 1997 and Co-chair of the WCSU Alumni Nursing Society, and I initiated this organization in 2013. We are a chapter of the WCSU Alumni Association. This  organization has proven vital in maintaining the excellence of nursing at the university and helping the program to advance the leadership in nursing education.

There are many reasons for alumni to stay in touch and involved. Keep your lifelong relationship with WestConn a strong one. We encourage you to:

  • Update your contact information and share news with fellow alumni.
  • Follow us on Facebook - WCSU Alumni Nursing Society.
  • Stay up-to-date with our news.
  • Attend university and alumni events.
  • Encourage the next generation of WestConn nurses through your experiences (career events, networking and volunteering in the skills lab).
  • Continue your education at WCSU (MSN - APRN or CNS and Ed.D - Educational Leadership in Nursing Education).
  • Visit the WCSU Alumni Nursing Society table at Homecoming (Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018).

Membership in the WCSU Alumni Nursing Society will help provide funding for the career mentoring program, establishment of additional nursing scholarships, publishing the Annual Nursing Society newsletter and the "Spring Event". The cost of membership is $25 annually.

WestConn has produced many great nurses throughout its many years. Our goal is to keep you connected to your colleagues and the nursing program.
