More than 20 Laredo College
students took a step closer toward their prosperous future this Thursday, Aug.
1 at the Laredo College Guadalupe and Lilia Martinez Fine Arts Center Theater.
The Vocational Nursing Program cohorts were honored at a traditional pinning
ceremony and recognized for their outstanding achievements. The ceremony afforded
students the opportunity to celebrate their academic accomplishments accompanied
by family, friends and loved ones.
Many of LC’s vocational nursing
students enter the local medical workforce, and many continue their studies at
LC as part of the Associate Degree Nursing Program. With the brand new Bachelor
of Science in Nursing Program starting this fall 2019 semester, Vocational
Nursing students can also now choose to pursue their bachelor’s degree as well.
