Golden Graduates

Every year, The University of New Mexico College of Nursing honors those alumni who graduated 50 years ago.  Celebrating their golden anniversary, they are known as our Golden Grads.

These nurses have dedicated their careers to caring for others and advancing the profession of nursing.  Their legacy is our legacy.
