Welcome From The President
We hope you will endeavor to refer to this website often in order to keep abreast of news pertaining to activities the Tuskegee University National Nursing Alumni Association (TUNNAA) is engaging in to lend support of the TU Nursing Department, the students enrolled there and Tuskegee University (TU) in general.
We urge every TU Nurse Alum to join and support TUNNAA in order for it to be the strong voice for addressing all issues pertaining to Tuskegee University’s Department of Nursing. TUNNAA needs the support of every nursing alum in order for it to be all it can and should be.
Lillian Holland Harvey (Dean Emeritus) would always say; “Come to Tuskegee School of Nursing as you are, and you will leave as you ought to be.” For most, this promise was fulfilled. It was under Dean Harvey’s leadership that the TU School of Nursing became the first baccalaureate nursing program in the State of Alabama. This is a legacy all nurse alumni are called upon to help support and protect through TUNNAA.
We (Nursing Alumni) came to Tuskegee University School of Nursing as we were, and we left as we ought to be. Now, it is time for us to give back to Alma Mater via our finances and services. Join TUNNAA (your professional alumni association) today, and stay abreast of all of the organization’s activities by way of this website.

Tuskegee Nursing Alumni
Since the inception of the Tuskegee Nursing Program 118 years ago, Tuskegee nursing alumni have contributed to the excellence of health care throughout the world. The contributions of the university’s alumni to the profession of nursing and health care are too numerous to cite. However, Tuskegee regards with considerable pride the five graduates of the Tuskegee institute Nurses’ Training School who served with valor on the campus during the Spanish American War. They were the only Black nurses employed by the United States Government during that time.
