The bonds joining Nightingale-Bamford alumnae transcend time and geography, with graduates spanning 23 countries and six continents.
Nightingale supports our network of strong, independent women by providing opportunities for graduates to remain connected to the school and each other. Through hosting and supporting a diverse set of events—ranging from Reunion to informal gatherings, lectures, career panels, and performances—we work to connect our vibrant alumnae community in ways that are meaningful to them.
A letter from the Alumnae Board President
Dear fellow alumnae,
Though the schoolhouse has changed over the past few years, the core values of Nightingale remain strongly intact – and our blue doors remain open to you, always. I hope you will explore the many ways you can stay connected to the school, and learn about the exciting initiatives underway.
The Alumnae Board has been working hard to keep you connected to Nightingale, with subcommittees to helm the different responsibilities that are critical to the success of our alumnae network: reunion and events; school relations; and the Nightingale Fund.
We have also enlisted Class Agents and Regional Reps to help expand and engage our Nightingale network. We have exciting new events and programs this year for alumnae around the world as well as many opportunities for Nightingale students to interact with alumnae. Thanks to the hard work of all of our Alumnae Volunteers the Nightingale community has never been so engaged or connected.
I hear terrific stories of Nightingale alumnae connecting with one another across class years, making new friendships and providing career opportunities in the process. Don’t forget to share your news with the school—we all love hearing what’s new in The Blue Doors. And I hope to see you at an upcoming event, including Reunion 2020 on May 1 and 2, 2020 (a must for years ending in 5 and 0!) and the Centennial Gala on October 15, 2020. What is to be fully celebrated are Nightingale’s enduring values – truth, friendship, loyalty – and the way in which the school forever shapes our hearts and minds.
With Excitement and Gratitude,
Devon Beddard Caraher ’96
Alumnae Board President
