Approximately 150 people were in attendance for the pinning of 17 students who have completed the degree of ASN at Ancilla College. Students were pinned with the Ancilla College nursing pin exclusive to the College’s nursing program by friends, family, or faculty who are also nurses. It is a way of ‘passing the torch’ so to speak to the next generation of nurses.
Donna Ignatavicius was the guest speaker for the ceremony. Donna is a renowned book author and nurse leader in nursing education. Donna spoke of the four C’s of nursing care.
After the ceremony, students and guests were received by Mrs. Ignatavicius and nursing faculty. Cake and punch was served.
