Of the 128 graduating nursing students, 95 are receiving a pin as they earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree, and 33 will receive a hood in honor of completing their Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.).

“The pin is a symbolic expression of welcoming nurses into the profession, and the hood denotes scholarly professional achievement,” said Dr. Angie Mickle, dean of the school of nursing. “It’s a huge accomplishment, considering the robust number of students graduating from our nursing program.”
