RALEIGH, N.C. (December 11, 2015) - More nurses will soon be joining the Triangle’s health care workforce: 58 graduates of Wake Tech’s nursing program received their pins at the Perry Health Sciences Campus. The ceremony took place one day before the commencement exercises on Main Campus. Graduates included husband and wife, Joshua and Ashley Griffin!  

In addition to their pins, the graduates received long-stemmed red roses and a ceramic lamp as a symbol of commitment and dedication attributed to Florence Nightingale. They also recited the traditional Florence Nightingale pledge. Graduates are now eligible to take the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX) to become licensed as Registered Nurses. Most will stay and work in the Triangle area, filling the demand for nurses at hospitals, physician offices and nursing homes.  

Wake Tech President Dr. Stephen Scott congratulated the graduates and praised them for committing to the challenges and rewards of caring for others. “Nurses will always be in demand because they provide such a vital service,” Scott said. “The profession you’ve chosen is a noble one in which you can have a real impact on people’s lives, every day.”    

In addition to the Associate Degree Nursing program, Wake Tech offers the Associate Degree Nursing – Advanced Placement program for Licensed Practical Nurses who seek to advance their education and advance in the profession, as well as the Regionally Increasing Baccalaureate Nurses program. This four-year program in collaboration with Winston-Salem State University, offers the opportunity to earn a Baccalaureate in Nursing.
