The USC Salkehatchie Rural Nursing Initiative held its 2nd Annual Stethoscope Ceremony to recognize and congratulate the 16 students who successfully progressed to the Upper Division of the nursing program.
During the Stethoscope Ceremony, faculty members honored junior nursing students by draping a stethoscope around each student’s neck and donning them with special memorabilia pins cut in the shape of a stethoscope. The pin is engraved with the anticipated date of graduation.
Progression to the Upper Division is extremely competitive and requires hard work, dedication and a true desire to become a nurse.
The event was held at the Carolina Theatre in Allendale on Wednesday, Oct. 8.
