Thirty-nine students recently participated in a special pinning ceremony for Northwest State Community College’s registered nursing (RN) associate degree program. Once program completion is met, graduates are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Exam and enter directly into the workforce, or they may transfer their credits into a bachelor’s degree program.
As part of the ceremony, the College recognized twelve students who were inducted into the Alpha Delta Chapter of the Alpha Delta Nu Nursing Honor Society. In order to qualify, students must maintain a minimum 3.0 grade point average, with at least a B in all nursing classes.
