Twelve students will graduate from the Mid-Plains Community College Licensed Practical Nursing program on June 30.
The public is invited to attend a pinning ceremony at 11 a.m. in the McDonald-Belton Theater, 601 W. State Farm Road in North Platte.
LPNs are the eyes and ears of registered nurses and physicians. They provide hands-on care for patients – whether that be changing dressings, administering medication or simply taking the time to listen and reassure.
Pinnings represent a significant step in the process to becoming a LPN. Only graduates of approved nursing programs are eligible for licensure in Nebraska.
Brandy Bielicki, Stephanie Montes, Amanda Schrock and Brittany Jordan will be the student speakers for the pinning ceremony at MPCC. Christina Patten of Palisade will graduate..
