UC Nursing Program to hold Pinning Ceremony


Beckley, W.Va. – For 13 University of Charleston-Beckley students, an important milestone will take place Friday, December 8, as the Associate Degree of Nursing program holds its pinning ceremony. 

A pinning ceremony welcomes newly graduated nursing students into the professional ranks.

The ceremony will take place at the Raleigh County Convention Center at 6:30 pm. 

The University of Charleston Associate Degree in Nursing started at its Beckley location in September, 2014. The program offers a unique schedule, allowing students to continue to work while attending classes on the weekend.

“We’re proud of the hard work of our students, staff and faculty,“ said Dr. Jerry Forster, Chief of Staff of the University of Charleston. “Our weekend-only ADN program in Beckley is unique.  It's an innovative way for healthcare students to reach their individual goals and for UC to address the very real need for nurses in West Virginia.”
