Old Business

  • Nursing Alumni were involved in different activities during the summer, including Vesper’s in May for WB and Keokuk campuses. Both ceremonies went well and there was good alumni support for each event. Diane and Leanne worked with the SCC Golf Outing, which helps with scholarships. Diane worked with the SNA WB students during a car wash and raised $250 for the flood victims. The money was given to the Flood 2008 fund through Two Rivers Bank.  The Hawk Eye even put an article and photos in the paper. The SNA WB evening/weekend class helped to fill sandbags during the flood. It was done during their clinical time.

  • Discussed about continuing to collect crank flashlights for Vickie White’s next trip to Haiti. 10 have been collected so far. Will continue to watch for deals and encourage other alumni to collect. Unknown of when Vickie will be making next trip.

New Business

  • Encouraging ways to get involved with students at each campus. Jeanie mentioned that WB campus does presentations regarding evidence-based practice. Thoughts were to see if students would be interested in doing presentations at a meeting. Mary Saxton mentioned that the WB SNA started putting out a newsletter. Diane will contact Jennifer Martarano, SNA Pres, to get information.

  • Discussed options to get more interest. Options discussed regarding working with local hospitals to help sponsor CEU’s. It was mentioned about talking with Sue F @ GRMC regarding evidence practice ideas for possible CEU’s.

  • Discussed ways to keep current members up to date and keep informed. A quarterly newsletter was suggested. Would like to aim for January edition. Topics would include marriages, births, recognition for certifications, CEU’s, refresher classes and evidence-based practice tips. Also suggested was that there were new changes with the nursing programs, like new uniforms, and thinking that alumni would like to find out new info. Mary said she would get a picture of the old/new uniforms.

  • Diane mentioned that the SCC Vision reaches all alumni and seeing if we could write an article to put in the Vision, hoping to reach more people. Diane will contact Jeff Ebbing regarding that.
