NETC Graduates 23 from Associate Degree of Nursing Program

ADN Class of 2022

Northeastern Technical College (NETC) held their Nursing Pinning Ceremony for its Nursing Graduates on Thursday, May 5. During the ceremony 23 students graduated with their Associate Degree in Nursing and received their pins.

The college streamed the service through Facebook Live for family and friends who were unable to attend in person.

Dr. Kyle Wagner, NETC president, began the ceremony by welcoming attendees and offering the college's congratulations to the nursing class on their achievement.

Nursing graduate, Joshua Tyler King of Chesterfield, spoke to the audience on behalf of his classmates, thanking both family and friends for their support over the past few years. He then addressed classmates, taking them for a ride down memory lane, speaking of the ups and downs of their shared experience.

"In August of 2020, a group of diverse strangers came together during a pandemic to embark on a journey that would change our lives forever," said King. "Some were high school graduates stepping out into the world, while other were looking for career changes. In that moment it was clear that although we came from an array of backgrounds, we were all here for the same purpose. We all had one goal in mind, and that was to get to this very moment."

The Keynote Speaker for the ceremony was Carolina Pines Chief Nursing Officer, Christy Moody, MSN, RN. During her speech, she spoke to students about being a life-long learner.

"Having been a nurse for over 29 years, I have a few pearls of wisdom for you," said Moody. "Medicine and technology are always rapidly changing. Each day will give you the opportunity to learn a new skill, a new drug, a new order set or treatment modality. As a nurse you will be called on to learn new skills daily. Always been willing to change and keep a positive attitude. Make a commitment to be a life-long learner."

During the ceremony, the graduates dedicated their nursing pins and lit a symbolic lamp as they recited the Nightingale Pledge in memory of pioneer of modern nursing Florence Nightingale.
