Congratulations Spring 2015 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!
