During an induction ceremony, students entering the associate degree in nursing program met members of the faculty who offered encouragement and advice to start them on their way toward careers as registered nurses.

Dr. David Dees, interim dean, greeted the students and shared how his mother began a nursing career as a non-traditional student, starting with a two-year program similar to the Kent State East Liverpool program and advancing to a graduate degree in nursing.

She is the reason I went to college and the reason I keep learning. You can do this! Welcome to your nursing future.”

Each student received a key ring, certificate and signed the Florence Nightingale Pledge. Once all the certificates were distributed, the class stood and recited the pledge in unison.
