The School of Nursing Recognition Ceremony will not take place in May as originally planned. The ceremony is a time-honored and cherished celebration. We continue to discuss how to best honor our students in an alternative format or time. The COVID-19 pandemic situation continues to evolve. Honoring our students' accomplishments is very important to us, however, the safety of all needs to be considered during this time. We will provide additional information when available.
