Pinned! Class of 2022
HCC celebrates ASN Class of 2022
Holyoke Community College celebrated the graduation of 57 students from its Associate in Science in Nursing degree program on Thursday, May 26. The students were recognized during a pinning ceremony at HCC's Center for Health Education & Simulation during which they were formally inducted into the health care field as soon-to-be registered nursing professionals. During a traditional pinning ceremony, new nursing graduates light candles, receive their nursing pin from a registered nurse, and recite the Nightingale Pledge.
