We recently welcomed back over 20 alumni members of the Class of 2017 to participate in the “Alumni Panel” to speak about their experiences as new graduates. Each year, Dr. Lovecchio coordinates the Senior Professional Day that helps prepare the senior class for their job hunts and their first year as professional Royal RNs. The panel this year is employed in very diverse group of specialties including NICU, Cardiac ICU, Medical/Surgical, Pediatrics, Women’s Health and Emergency nursing. The Alumni gave practical advice and some honest reflections on their experiences taking their licensing exam and adjusting to their current roles. They also spoke about the difference a Jesuit education made in their nursing practice. The Alumni Panel is always the most popular part of the day and the seniors appreciated being able to speak with and network with our graduates.
