Last weekend, El Paso Community College (EPCC) Nursing Program celebrated its 2020 graduating students with a Drive-thru Pinning Ceremony
“It is a tradition for our students to receive their nursing pin and lamp in a ceremony; they had the opportunity to share this memorable time with their loved ones and celebrated by their faculty,” EPCC officials shared. “It was a way to recognize our nursing students’ merit, which they have achieved despite the persistent challenges from the nursing program and the pandemic.”
