How you can join

We are excited to share with you the new membership structure for The Ohio State University College of Nursing Alumni Society! The Alumni Society’s Board recently approved changes to its constitution that reflect an inclusive membership model. This important change will provide the opportunity for all nursing alumni to enhance their relationship with the College of Nursing and will better align us with the inclusive membership model recently implemented by The Ohio State University Alumni Association.

In 2012, the Alumni Association changed its membership model (where all graduates are basic members), the Nursing Alumni Society changed to its membership and dues structure as well. The changes are as follows:

  • If you received a degree from the College of Nursing (CON), you are automatically considered a Basic Member of both the OSUAA and Nursing Alumni Society.
  • Graduates of the College of Nursing (including life members of the OSUAA) who make an annual $25 gift or more to the College of Nursing will receive benefits of Sustaining Membership to the Nursing Alumni Society.
  • Graduates of the College of Nursing (non-life members of OSUAA) who make a $75 gift or more with at least $25 into a College of Nursing fund will receive the benefits of a Sustaining Member in both the OSUAA and Nursing Alumni Society.
  • Graduates of the College of Nursing (non-life members of the OSUAA) who make a gift of $75 or more to any OSU fund other than a College of Nursing fund will receive the benefits of Sustaining Membership in OSUAA.
