New nurses on the floor

The 54th class in the Associate Degree Nursing Program at Three Rivers Community College receive their nursing pins in a ceremony Friday, December 13, 2019 in the college's multi-purpose room.

The 35 graduates have completed an associates of science degree in nursing and upon completion of their licensing examination will earn the credential as registered nurses.

The graduates heard from Three Rivers President Mary Ellen Jukoski, class speaker Katelyn Chenail, and a keynote address from former faculty member Krista Prendergast, now an assistant professor of nursing at Southern Connecticut State University.

The new nurses received the Three Rivers nursing pin, which was designed by the first class to graduate from what was then Mohegan Community College in 1975.
