Glasgow, Ky. – Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC) held its nursing pinning ceremony for PN nursing students Wednesday, July 15, 2020. The ceremony took place at the Glasgow Health Campus.

The College honored thirty-seven PN students completing their practical Nursing Diploma from the Glasgow Campus. The fact that the students had to wear facial masks at the ceremony due to the COVID-19 pandemic did not dampen the spirits of the graduates.

“We salute these students for their perseverance and determination to complete their studies during this challenging time,” said Dr. Angie Harlan, Dean of Allied Health and Nursing sat SKYCTC. “They will join a workforce where nurses were already in high demand. Many will start new jobs on the front lines of COVID-19.”

Awards and recognition were presented by various health care facilities in the area.
