Hiram College hosted its annual Nursing Uniform Convocation to honor sophomore Bachelor of Science in nursing students as they begin their clinical rotations. The celebration acknowledges each student’s commitment to serving others through their career in professional nursing. Students received their uniforms, a nursing pin, and shared their pledges of commitment to the practice.
More than eighty-five guests joined the celebration from across the country.
The following students were recognized during the ceremony:
The mission of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Hiram College is to prepare clinically competent, ethically grounded, socially and culturally responsible professional nurses who are prepared to think critically and participate as leaders in the delivery of health and nursing care.
The liberal arts tradition prepares students with a broad perspective of persons and the world in which they live. This tradition, grounded in the understanding that knowledge is interrelated and interdisciplinary, prepares persons to be keen and critical observers of how the world works, seeing issues, alternatives, solutions and aspects of life that more narrowly trained minds do not. These skills combined with knowledge and skills in the discipline of nursing, are essential to the preparation of individuals ready to serve as professional nurses.
