North Florida College Honors Practical Nursing Class of 2019

MADISON, FL – North Florida College honored its Practical Nursing Class of 2019 into the nursing profession with a traditional pinning and lamp lighting ceremony on July 11 at Van H. Priest Auditorium. The pinning and lamp lighting ceremony is held for each graduating class of nurses at NFC, and through the ages has been considered a rite of passage marking the beginning of each student’s career as a healthcare professional.

Cheers of accomplishment and words of encouragement were shared among graduates, their family and friends, and the NFC nursing faculty and staff as the graduates shared memories about their educational journey and received the College’s official nursing pin.

Renarda Arnold of Madison received the Academic Achievement Award. Megan Greene of Madison received the Nightingale Award of Excellence. Shellie Ragans of Madison received the Clinical Excellence Award. Matthew Settles of Greenville received the Keeper of the Light Award. As Keeper of the Light, Settles will return next year to pass along the tradition to the 2020 graduating class.

Twenty-one graduates took part in the ceremony's “Lighting of the Lamps” and reciting of the Nightingale Pledge. North Florida College nursing instructor Amanda Williams was chosen by the graduating class to be the guest speaker.

Congratulations to the North Florida College Practical Nursing Class of 2019.
