The nurse pinning: a rite of passage for nurses. A public proclamation to remain faithful to the profession and be compassionate, understanding and devoted in care.

Sunday, Feb. 22, 36 students in the associate degree nursing program earned their nurses pins, a public symbol acknowledging their achievement, knowledge of nursing and school affiliation. These 36 students came together from different backgrounds and areas of the world to join together in one common goal: pledging their lives to service of others through nursing.

Members of this group were part of a class that in November 2007 became the second class ever to earn a 100 percent pass rate in their practical nursing board exams contributing to an overall pass rate of 95 percent for the program. Nancy Pares, director of nursing programs, expressed confidence that a strong pass rate for the registered nursing board exams will follow. "We´re proud of all of them. They have worked very hard to achieve this."

The registered nursing board exams are the next step in this 1 + 1 program. Students entered the program as certified nursing assistants, obtained their practical nursing licensure and will move on to earn their registered nursing licensure. MCC´s nursing programs have seen 200 graduates in the last year.

MCC´s faculty and staff extend our congratulations to this quarter´s nursing candidates.
