The College of Nursing is proud to celebrate its graduating students of the Class of 2022.
These nursing students are unique in that they completed their clinicals during the pandemic. "However, they can feel secure that they have the knowledge needed to be successful and are prepared to face any challenges. Their experiences during the pandemic have equipped them to overcome any obstacles placed in their paths," said Dean Marie Foley; Ph.D., R.N.
