Welcome Back OU Nurses!

Whether you were a Pioneer or a Grizzly, Oakland University is proud of our nearly 9,000 nursing alumni living locally in Michigan, nationally and abroad.

As the battle with the COVID19 pandemic continues, we want to personally thank each one of you, for your most important work as a nurse and for serving on the front lines to ensure the health and well-being of others. During this time of great uncertainty, and a health crisis the world has not seen in decades, you stand at the forefront, selflessly providing compassionate care to patients in hospitals, health care offices, nursing homes and in the community.
