NEIT’s latest cohort of students to complete the Associate in Science degree in Nursing program were awarded their New England Tech RN pins at a ceremony held on September 25, 2015, at the East Greenwich campus. Also for the first time, graduates from NEIT’s Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN-BSN) online degree program received their RN-BSN pins.
The Pinning Ceremony is a time-honored tradition within the nursing community to celebrate new nurses entering this very honorable profession. Dr. Dayle Joseph, Assistant Provost and Director of Nursing, gave welcoming remarks. Assistant Provost Thomas Thibodeau extended congratulations to the graduates.
