Sixty-seven nursing students of the Crouse Hospital College of Nursing were honored by faculty and staff in a Moving-Up Ceremony this month to mark their progression from the first year at the college to the second year of studies.
College Director Ann Sedore, RN, PhD, delivered an inspirational talk encouraging students to strive to be the best, take pride in accomplishments and never stop learning. Each student was presented with a flower and their new identification badge indicating their standing as second year students. Students, faculty and nursing guests recited the Florence Nightingale pledge affirming their responsibilities as nurses and dedicating themselves to this honorable profession. Students were introduced to the second year faculty at the college, as well.
Student speaker, Shannon McManus, addressed the class, reminiscing about the shared experiences and encouraging all to look to the future. Also in attendance were: Julie Johnson and Joan Greene, both Crouse alumni and strong supporters of the students at the college. Following the ceremony was a reception, at which students, faculty, staff and alumni continued to share reminiscences, take photographs and savor the moment.
