"I feel very prepared to encounter anything after going through this program. I couldn't have done this without my instructors. They're the backbone of this program."

The joyous occasion was shared by all who participated in the traditional pinning ceremony.

"As instructors, we give ourselves totally to them for that whole year," said LVN Program Director Tony Cortes. "The pinning ceremony represents their hard work and, to a certain extent, our hard work as well."
