The UH Manoa Nursing Alumni Association (UHMNAA) is an independent LLC organization that strives to connect UH Manoa Nursing alumni, foster networking, and to support UHM Nursing. Established in 2012, the UHMNAA is an alumni chapter organization of the University of Hawaii Alumni Association, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

Endowed Scholarship

In 2014, UHMNAA established an endowed scholarship fund and hosts an annual fundraising dinner where proceeds are used to increase the endowment and provide scholarships to students. In 2016, the School celebrated 60 years of BS Nursing and hosted the Sensational 60th Nursing Anniversary Celebration Gala on June 16, 2016. The event raised $161,000 for student scholarships and launched the UHM Nursing Hall of Fame inducting 6 outstanding alumni. Proceeds from the Sensational 60th Gala were added to the UHMNAA endowment. UHMNAA continues this tradition by inducting alumni into the UHM Nursing Hall of Fame. In 2018, UHMNAA launched the Outstanding Young Alumni award to recognize the contributions of recent alumni. UHMNAA is proud to provide annual scholarships to undergraduate and graduate nursing students.
