SAN FRANCISCO, October 24, 2005 -- Alumni of San Francisco State University's School of Nursing are invited to celebrate the school's 50 years of operation at an on-campus gathering on Saturday, Nov. 5.

A day of activities is planned from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. A no-host luncheon at the camp' Seven Hills Conference Center is scheduled for noon. The keynote speaker is Rheba de Tornyay, a former director of the SFSU School of Nursing and its first faculty member.

SF State admitted its first nursing students in 1955. Over the years, the school has introduced innovations designed to provide nursing students with challenging practical experience including joint programs with hospitals and other institutions of higher education. Students receive interdisciplinary training in nursing, counseling, social services, business, health education and medicine and train in varied community venues. This year, 250 undergraduates and 150 graduate students are enrolled at the SFSU School of Nursing.

SFSU School of Nursing alumni who have not yet been contacted are urged to call the School of Nursing at (415) 338-1802 or visit for more details.
