Welcome to the Lewis University Nursing Alumni Network (LU-NAN)

LU-NAN was created to “bring together all Lewis University nursing alumni to promote nursing knowledge that benefits the nursing professional and the clientele they serve and to enhance ties with Lewis University through mutually beneficial programming.”  Its goals are to provide networking, mentorships, and continuing education to all nursing alumni as well as improve collaboration among the Lewis University nursing community.To help LU-NAN reach its goals, two committees were created.  The Networking Committee, chaired by Pat McCarthy ’97, was formed to foster mentoring, networking and social events between fellow alumni and students. The Networking Committee will examine a mentoring program and professional networking events. The Professional Development Committee, chaired by Karen Nicholson MS ’10 was created to promote continued learning among nursing professionals and plans to supplement and improve Lewis University’s existing nursing continuing education programs.

Student/Alumni Mentoring Program 

By now, you should have received a letter introducing the Student/Alumni Mentoring Program being implemented by the Lewis University Nursing Alumni Network. If you have not received that letter, please contact Joe Volin ’08 at or (815) 836-5472 to update your mailing address and to receive an application to become a mentor in this fantastic program. If you received the letter and are interested, the deadline to submit the application has been extended until March 11, 2016. Pairings will be made on March 12, 2016 by volunteers from LU-NAN. The application may be submitted online by completing the form online. You will receive confirmation once your form is received. The goal of the mentoring program is to support graduating seniors with their transition from nursing student to nurse. The program will pair a Senior II with a graduate from the CONHP that has recently experienced this same transition. The program will officially begin on April 2, 2016 on the campus of Lewis University. Attendance at the program on this day is necessary to introduce alumni mentors with their student mentees. The event will begin at 2:00 p.m. The time commitment for mentors will be flexible with the dynamics of the mentoring relationship being discussed on April 2, 2016.

If you would like more information on the program, please contact Joe Volin ’08 at or (815) 836-5472.
