Alumni Resources & Benefits

The NESA Alumni Community works to promote the spirit of fellowship among our graduates. We want to assist in your acupuncture practice or any health-related business and we hope you take advantage of our resources and let us know how we can further strengthen the alumni network and offerings.

Bio-hazard/Sharps Disposal Service

NESA provides a fee-based bio-hazard/sharps disposal service for all licensed practitioners and students of the college. Alumni receive 10% off the regular fee for disposal and because we charge you by volume instead of by container your savings can add up. To speed up the disposal process please have the Bio-hazard/Sharps disposal form filled out and your containers properly marked. Bio-hazard/sharps disposals may be made during NESA Store hours and weekends during Continuing Education events.

Alumni & Friends e-Newsletter

NESA sends an electronic newsletter to alumni with the latest alumni news, CE offerings, happenings at NESA, and upcoming conferences and events. If you have items for sale, a rental property, a job or internship to offer, this is the place to be featured. Please be sure we have your most up-to-date email address on file. Simply use the link below to send us your new/updated information.

Free Practitioner Listing

Located on the NESA Website, we list the names and contact information of any alum who wishes to be part of our referral network. Alumni are encouraged to submit their practice information. Please reference the link to add your information.

Alumni Discount at the NESA Store

Alumni receive 10% of everything in the NESA store. Also, in an effort to support you as you build your practice, alumni also receive 15% off their first large purchase in the NESA store. Finally, any purchase in the store as an alumnus will be counted in our rewards program. Once you earn 1,000 points you will receive a $50 credit to be used in the NESA store. 617.558.1688 x 2

Career Opportunities and the NESA Forum

As a service and benefit to our alumni, NESA lists career opportunities in the alumni section of the NESA Forum.  The alumni section of the NESA Forum also serves as an online community that can put you in touch with fellow alumni. It's a great resource to ask questions, discuss cases, reconnect with old classmates, and find out what's happening at NESA today. Registration is free.

Kelly Library Resources

The Kelly Library can now request articles from medical libraries around the country. Because we are a 'free-share' library and will fulfill article requests from other libraries at no cost, we are eligible to borrow journal articles from other 'free-share' libraries at no cost. This new service will greatly expand and improve our document delivery capabilities and give the NESA community access to thousands of journals. For more information feel free to reach out to the Director of Library Services, Bette Bissonnette at

Volunteer Opportunities

Alumni Ambassadors, CE Hosts, Event Lead Generators Get involved and THINK NESA!

Alumni Ambassadors:

Having your support at various admissions recruiting events, as well as community outreach gatherings would be tremendous. Working with us to educate the public on the benefits of acupuncture while helping to promote our top notch education and teaching clinic furthers our institution. Prospective students and patients really enjoy meeting YOU, our alumni, who have a depth of experience and knowledge to share.

Community Event Lead Generators:

As alumni you may be aware of various programs and events near you. Events such as; health fairs, town days or community gatherings are some examples of visibility opportunities where NESA would like to be! Again, we simply ask that you THINK NESA! If you see a program or event kindly share it with us. Alternatively, if you would like to represent NESA as an Alumni Ambassador at a program or event, we would be happy to send NESA materials directly to you!

CE Alumni Hosts:

Continuing Education offers an opportunity for alumni to serve as rotating hosts for CE programs. In exchange for providing ground transportation and other logistical support for a particular CE seminar, alumni hosts may attend that seminar at no cost. Contact the CE department at if interested.

Finally, NESA alumni are all over the country and all over the world. Though we have representation across social media, if you are looking to connect with an alum in your area, let us know! Always happy to help make new connections. For additional information or to volunteer, please reach out to our Director of Community Relations and Outreach, Nicole Gamer at or 617-558-1788 ext. 268.
