PSON Alumni Association

Greetings to all Alumni and Friends!

PSON Alumni Board of Directors made the difficult but necessary decision in 2020 to cancel our annual luncheon in the Fall 2020 due to Covid-19 related concerns. We are hopeful to see you all in 2021.

In 2020, the Alumni Association provided generous donations to:

  • Nurse House COVID-19 Fund
  • PSON Student Hardship Fund

The mission of the association is to foster, develop, and improve nursing services and nursing education through the coordinated action of nurses with allied professional groups, and other citizens to meet the needs of the community.

The Association aims to achieve this by:

  1. Advancing the interest of the students and alumni by providing opportunities to maintain and build on their relationships with Mount Sinai Beth Israel and the Phillips School of Nursing.
  2. Providing scholastic achievement and professional development benefits to the Membership and new graduates via Awards and Association events.
  3. Carrying an active program which maintains the highest standard of nursing practice by promoting professional education and advancement via educational programs, networking events and scholarships.
  4. Encouraging participation and cooperation in professional and community activities.

The Association is overseen by a Board of Directors. The Board meets several times each year to plan the year’s activities and to manage Alumni business.

Among the initiatives carried out annually by the Association are:

  • Scholarship support for outstanding active alumni enrolled in BSN, MSN and doctoral programs
  • Annual alumni awards program at the Fall Luncheon
  • Financial support for continuing education programs
  • Sponsorship of educational programs offering Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
  • Informal networking events to keep in touch with former classmates and friends
  • Support for class reunions at the annual fall luncheon
  • Financial aid for nursing service support when ill
