Nursing Alumni Network Banner


The Cal State LA Nursing Alumni Network exists to support the mission of the California State University, Los Angeles and the Patricia A. Chin School of Nursing in their efforts to transform individual lives and build stronger and healthier communities through scholarship, research, and proactive community engagement. We also serve the alumni through establishing opportunities to reunite, engage, and network with a community of nursing professionals in order to contribute and advance the art and science of the profession of Nursing.
