As alumnae, our graduates join a network of inspiring women who share a lifelong connection through Nightingale.

Welcome Alumnae!

As Nightingale enters its second century, we are grateful for your support and partnership, which helps to build and strengthen our community.

The primary mission of the Alumnae Board is to foster a lifelong relationship between alumnae and the School as well as with one another. Our Alumnae Board is working hard to make that happen, by creating events and programs inclusive of all, no matter where you live.

We are able to do this by working alongside our alumnae volunteers who show their dedication in myriad ways—by being class correspondents, Nightingale Fund class agents, reunion representatives, attending events, participating in The Nightingale Fund, being mentors, or by speaking on panels or in the classroom.

Thank you, Nightingale alumnae, for showing up for our school, sharing your voices and fortifying our community. The alumnae network of which we often speak is not just community, it is our extended family. And like family, it supports, encourages, and keeps us whole throughout life because its foundation is rooted in truth, friendship, and loyalty.

With gratitude,

Terri Davis-Merchant ‘95
President, Alumnae Board

Alumnae Overview

Alumnae Leadership

The Nightingale-Bamford School Alumnae Association efforts are coordinated by the Office of Institutional Advancement, the Alumnae Board, and the Young Alumnae Committee and is supported by hundreds of alumnae who are involved each year.

“Nightingale has inspired in me the ability to ask questions…dig deeper, learn more, and take the initiative to go learn about it.”

Sara Allan ’11

Alumnae Events

Relationships are at the heart of Nightingale; the goal of our alumnae program is to help alumnae make connections with each other and the school. Please join us for our virtual and in person alumnae events that aim to enrich your life.

“I have used my experience at Nightingale to inspire other girls to go beyond barriers, question the status quo with confidence, empathy, resilience, and reason.”

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Alumnae Programming

At Nightingale, we value difference as a source of strength and means of growth. Nightingale begins its second century with an unwavering commitment towards equity and inclusivity. To that end, the Alumnae Board is working towards reforming old traditions, continuing beloved traditions that are reflective of our broad alumnae population, and creating new traditions that celebrate and honor the diversity of our community.

"We are committed to programming that is inclusive and representative of our alumnae community as a whole, ensuring that all Nightingale alumnae are welcome, included, and heard."
