MCC Awards Nursing Pins

Meridian Community College hosted a pinning ceremony for graduates of the associate degree nursing program.

Ninety-three students were eligible to receive their pins, symbolizing successful completion of the 2-year program.

MCC's Dr. Richie McAlister, dean of career and technical education, says 3,690 students have come through this program since 1965.

"And from here they are eligible to take their registered nurse boards and become registered nurses," said McAlister. "An awful lot of these nurses will go to work in our local hospitals and acute care centers. And they are quality caretakers, no question about it."

McAlister says 97.2 % of students who have completed MCC's nursing program have been successful in achieving their board certification.
