Released: 05/12/2011

The Department of Nursing at LSU Alexandria will hold the pinning ceremony for spring graduates May 18 at 6:30 p.m. in the Fitness Center on campus. The public is invited.

This spring’s graduating class includes 48 students who will receive an associate degree in nursing and one who will earn a bachelor of science in nursing, announced Dr. Elizabeth Battalora, chairwoman of the Department of Nursing. A reception honoring the graduates will be held immediately following the pinning ceremony.

“We have a rigorous and well-respected nursing program, and this is a time to celebrate the accomplishments of students who have successfully completed a demanding curriculum on their way to becoming registered nurses,” said Battalora.

Half of the graduates in the 51-year history of LSUA hold nursing degrees.
