In order to celebrate the accomplishments of Harford Community College’s Summer 2020 Nursing Class, a slideshow has been created to virtually recognize the nursing degree graduates’ perseverance and determination. They are ready to put into practice what they've learned and give the gift of healing to others at a time they are needed most.

The slideshow includes congratulatory remarks from the following Harford Community College administrators: Dr. Timothy Sherwood, Vice President for Academic Affairs; Dean of Nursing and Allied Health Professions Laura Cianelli Preston; and Dale Spielman, Director for Nursing Education.

Two Harford nursing students received recognition awards. Emily Rose Sterner received the UM UCH Harford Memorial Hospital Volunteers Auxiliary Award and the Spalding Leadership for Science of Nursing Award. Viktoriia Aldred was awarded the Spalding Leadership for Art of Nursing Award.

HCC normally holds pinning ceremonies for associate degree nursing graduates in May, August and December or January. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this summer’s pinning ceremony has been postponed with hope that it may be held at a future date.
