St. Boniface Registered Nurses’ Alumni Association

The St. Boniface Registered Nurses’ Alumni Association is open to all graduates of the St. Boniface School of Nursing and Associates (RNs that are not graduates of the St. Boniface School of Nursing).

The purpose of our alumni association has evolved over the years to keep pace with the needs of alumni members and changes in technology but continues to meet the objectives as outlined in our Constitution: to promote a sense of spirit of unity, professional growth, and an interest in our history.

The Alumni Association provides opportunity to reconnect with friends and fellow graduates. It also serves to recognize the excellent education graduates received making it possible to provide holistic, compassionate care, a reflection of the Grey Nuns influence.
