On Wednesday evening, May 5, during National Nurses Week, Midland College (MC) recognized 16 graduating Associate Degree Nursing students during a pinning and candle lighting ceremony at the Al G. Langford Chaparral Center.

“All of these students are commended for their dedication and perseverance,” Dr. Carmen Edwards, MC dean of Health Sciences, said.  “They will make a positive impact on healthcare and the lives of their patients.”

According to Edwards, the students are well prepared to pass the National Council Licensure Exam to become registered nurses and provide healthcare to citizens throughout West Texas.

During Wednesday evening’s ceremony, MC Associate Degree Nursing faculty presented Diana Ahlstrand, Crystal Rodriguez and Kristina Walker with the Wallace W. and Kathleen Irwin Nursing Scholarship Award for maintaining the highest GPAs in the class.
