Congratulations to students from Cohort 9 of the Second Degree Accelerated Program (SDAP), who received their sophomore pins on February 27! The ceremony will celebrate the transition of this group of SDAP students, who began their program in January, into clinical rotations.

In the past, this ceremony was the first official donning of the Mount Carmel uniform and student nurse cap. Although students no longer receive and wear caps, the modern ceremony maintains the same spirit, celebrating the ministry of caring and service that these aspiring nurses now undertake. Today, students receive an engraved pin, reminiscent of the lamp carried by the founder of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale, as she cared for wounded Crimean War soldiers 150 years ago. Upon graduation next February, they will receive a MCCN graduate pin, which highlights the College crest and will replace the lamp pin.

Congratulations to these SDAP Cohort 9 students for receiving their pins:
