2020 Distinguished Alumni Awards - POSTPONED

Regretfully, we must postpone the UCLA School of Nursing Distinguished Alumni Awards luncheon originally scheduled for May 2, 2020 as a precautionary measure to protect the health of attendees, friends, families, and the greater Los Angeles community. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we thank you for your understanding. We anticipate rescheduling to fall 2020, and will celebrate our honorees then, as well as the Year of the Nurse.

Many of you have asked how you can support nursing students and faculty during this difficult time.  If you would like to make a gift to assist the School of Nursing’s efforts to support nursing faculty and students during this pandemic, please visit:
