21 nursing graduates honored at pinning ceremony

It’s among the most difficult programs for students to get accepted into at Southwestern Community College.

Once in the Nursing program, students find it’s equally as challenging to complete.

But earlier this month, 21 students celebrated their successful journey through the program and received their pins during a ceremony at the college’s Jackson Campus.

“We are so proud of all these graduates,” said Dr. Mitch Fischer, dean of SCC’s health sciences programs. “Their accomplishment in completing our nursing program is impressive, and we know they will make us proud as they enter the field of nursing or continue their education.”

Each earned an associate in applied science degree, and all are eligible to apply and take the National Council Licensure Examination.

Some intend to pursue their bachelor’s degree at a four-year institution.
