NVCC’s Nursing & Respiratory Therapists Classes of 2019: More than 100 Strong

More than 100 soon-to-be graduates of two of NVCC’s Allied Health programs participated in the time-honored pinning ceremony tradition. Both ceremonies were held on NVCC’s Mainstage Theater with proud family members, friends, significant others, faculty, staff, and fellow students rallying around the students to cheer them on as they all reached the finish line of two rigorous academic programs. Thirteen students in the Associate of Science Respiratory Care program held their ceremony on May 16.

“As you know this is a year of significant achievements for you all.  You have earned fine credentials and have chosen to undertake the meaningful journey of service to help others. You are receiving your pin today, a symbol of your commitment to a meaningful profession,” said NVCC President Daisy Cocco De Filippis, Ph.D.

At the May 22 nursing pinning ceremony, President De Filippis praised the faculty and students for the significant achievements of the program. “This is the number one community college nursing program in the state of Connecticut,” she said citing the RegisteredNursing.org ranking the program received putting it among the top four programs in the state.

“Lead and advocate for yourself, for your patients and for your communities,” guest speaker Kimberly Sandor, Executive Director of CT Nurses Association urged the 112 graduates in her keynote.

The soon-to-be respiratory and nursing graduates then crossed the stage as members of the faculty presented their pins and posed for pictures.

With increasingly complex health care needs and an aging population, the demand for highly-qualified and skilled nurses and respiratory therapists to join the workforce continues to increase. NVCC offers new students and those seeking a career change top-ranked academic programs in both registered nursing and respiratory therapy. Graduates are eligible for employment in a variety of health care settings.  For more information on both programs, visit: nv.edu/nurse and nv.edu/respiratory.
