Congratulations Summer 2014 Graduates!
During graduation week, several events are held to commemorate this milestone for our students. Our bachelors and masters students attend a combined commencement during the spring and fall semesters. Our Doctor of Nursing Practice are hooded by the School of Nursing and the Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing are hooded by the Graduate School. These ceremonies offer the graduating students the opportunity to highlight their accomplishments and group leadership achievements. We are extremely proud of all of our students!
BSN Senior Recognition Ceremony
The Senior Recognition Ceremony is held during graduation week each semester. This ceremony offers the graduating students the opportunity to highlight their accomplishments and group leadership achievements just prior to the graduation ceremonies for the undergraduate students and completion of Phase I of the Accelerated Masters of Nursing Pathway for our graduate students. Family and friends are encouraged to attend to share in this culminating ceremony.
