Three Rivers Community College Pinning Ceremony Celebrates 27 Nursing Students

Happy NursesOn Friday, December 14, Three Rivers Community College held the fifty-second Nursing Pinning Ceremony. During the ceremony, 27 nursing students of the Class of Fall 2018 received their nursing pin, marking the completion of their nursing degree and serving as a symbol of their readiness to be compassionate professional caregivers.

Faculty and administration spoke to the students, admiring the hard work and determination that brought them to this point. Their class advisor, Assistant Professor Carol Emmerthal, congratulated them saying, “I wish you joy in providing care and comfort with compassion. Remain that active voice to the changes in healthcare and our nursing profession. I wish you a long and fulfilling career in our nursing profession, a life of growth and lifelong learning.”

Lindsay Thompson, Class Speaker, urged her classmates to “be the best that you can be, just for today, and you will be amazed at the future that you will create for yourself.” A candlelight recitation of the Nurse’s Pledge came after the presentation of the students’ nursing pins.
