All graduates and former students of the former Mennonite School of Nursing, the former Mennonite College of Nursing, and the current Mennonite College of Nursing at Illinois State University are considered alumni of the College. While your association with classes and textbooks and clinical studies was for a few years, your association with Mennonite College of Nursing lasts your lifetime.
Alumni are very much needed to keep the Mennonite College experience strong. Alumni may serve as clinical preceptors in some cases, or as informal mentors to current students. Alumni provide financial support which offers student scholarships, faculty support, technology enhancements, and more. Most importantly, alumni provide current students with examples of Mennonite's long-standing tradition of excellence and of its deeply-held values.
The Flame magazine is an annual publication that highlights alumni, students and college accomplishments. We invite you to read this year's commemorative edition of The Flame, which features 40 pages of inspiring stories and iconic photos in celebration of our 100th year.
