DOBSON — Nine students have graduated as practical nurses from Surry Community College.
The Nursing Pinning and Graduation Ceremony was held Dec. 17 at Fellowship Baptist Church in Ararat. Surry Community College Nurse Educator Betsy Duncan, MSN, RN, was the guest speaker.
The PN fall 2015 graduates are Glenda Lauren Bowman, Brittany Montana Gwyn, Alisha Marie Richards, Stephanie Michelle Pruett and Linda Ruby Urquiza of Mount Airy; Lauren Holbrook Dudley of Elkin; Tara Snow Martin of Lowgap; Kristian DeLanie Hauser of Winston-Salem; and Alexis Anna Jarrett of Pilot Mountain.
Surry nursing graduates provide care at different points throughout a patient’s lifetime in a variety of settings. Practical nursing is a one-year program that prepares students for careers as licensed practical nurses after taking the examination leading to licensure. Students also can choose to complete the ADN or Associate Degree in nursing, which is a two-year program enabling them to sit for the examination leading to licensure as a registered nurse.
