Each West Coast University nursing cohort leaves behind indelible memories after they move on. The WCU-Los Angeles BSN class that graduated in June 2016 took it a step further during their pinning ceremony.
"This was a very tight knit group who presented Dr. Khadeer Khan and Amanda Magrum with a signed photo," Anthony Stein, WCU-LA Student Affairs director, said. "We look forward to this group of graduates continuing their commitment to the nursing profession while in the work force."
Class speaker Catherine Keers presented the signed photos from the cohort of 77 nurse graduates.
"I think my favorite topic was advanced med-surg with Dr. Khan. He was amazing and I’m ready to move forward thanks to him." WCU graduate Oscar Rivera said after the ceremony, "I would also like to thank my parents for the sacrifices they have made for me to be here today, without them it would not be possible."
Held at the Sportsmen's Lodge in Studio City, the BSN graduates took part in the celebration by receiving their WCU nursing pins and reciting the Nurse's Pledge, the same oath taken by most nurses since the late 19th century.
“I’m glad that I went to nursing school, so now I can become a good nurse and help society. Thank you for giving me a chance to become a great nurse," WCU BSN graduate Ngoc Do said.
