  • Rhode Island Hospital Nurses' Alumni Association

  • The  alumni association of the former Rhode Island Hospital School of Nursing has approximately 900 active members and addresses for more than 1000 additional graduates.

    Contact the alumni office for information about replacing school pins, purchasing caps, acquiring transcripts and planning class reunions.

    The association holds seasonal meetings each year: dinners in the spring and fall, a winter luncheon and a summer trip or fun activity. An annual meeting, honoring 50-year reunion classes, is held each September. 

    The alumni association is located in the hospital's Gerry House, which served as the dormitory for nurses in training during the 1960s and 1970s.

    Office hours:

    The alumni office is usually open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday through Thursday. In the summer months, hours are limited to two days per week. A message, fax or e-mail may be left at any time.
