The Pinning Ceremony to honor graduates of Wichita Area Technical College’s (WATC) Practical Nurse Program was held May 19 at the National Center for Aviation Training (NCAT). Jennifer Brown, RN, BSN was asked to provide a pinning address and students Todd Platt and Tosha Voge spoke on behalf of the students.
“It is a privilege and honor as faculty to educate each new “generation” of nurses, and to be a part of perpetuating the honorable profession of nursing,” said Program Director Janice Wilson.
“The pinning ceremony is the culmination of their formal education, and represents their entry into practice as nurses. The road is long and arduous, yet the joy on their faces, the pride of their loved ones who have sacrificed so much to make this a reality, makes the journey worthwhile. Congratulations and welcome to our profession!”
