St Vincent’s Nurses Alumni
To all of our graduates, wherever you are throughout the world, we welcome each and every one of you to our website.
The Alumni was originally established by nurse Ida O’Dwyer in 1923. Since then, it has provided a wonderful forum for members to socialise, share experiences, work together and foster lifelong friendships.
The Alumni's Constitution states that 'the St Vincent's Nurses Alumni will act as a forum for nursing graduates and graduate nurse employees from the Sisters of Charity Health Services. It will enable them to meet socially and to work collaboratively with and for St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne.'
The Alumni's objectives are to:
- provide social opportunities for nursing graduates and employees, whereby friendship and goodwill will be fostered, memories shared and deceased members remembered
- raise funds for defined hospital projects and other worthwhile causes approved by the committee
- encourage and support the striving for nursing excellence at St Vincent’s
- promote the philosophy and values of the Sisters of Charity and the mission of St Vincent’s.
With more than 600 members from near and far and a conscientious committee of 14, the bonds of friendships made and memories shared continue on.
