Congratulations to the graduates of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program, who celebrated their achievement with a pinning ceremony. Dr. Pier Broadnax, director of Nursing, explains:
"In a traditional pinning ceremony, nursing students are "pinned" to signify the rite of passage from one level of preparation to the next. Whereas physicians have a white coat ceremony, nurses have a pinning ceremony. In the case of our students, they are graduating from being associate degree-prepared nurses to baccalaureate prepared nurses.

The mission of the BSN program is to produce well-educated, autonomous, competent and resourceful graduates to practice nursing in the multiethnic, global and technological society of the 21st century. Visit the RN to BSN program online or contact Dr. Broadnax at (202) 274-5916.
