On May 20, 13 nursing students were “pinned,” officially marking their graduation from the Luzerne County Community College (LCCC) Nursing Program at Wayne Memorial Hospital, the third graduating class since the program began.
“It’s another proud moment for Wayne Memorial Hospital and for our nursing students,” said James Pettinato, RN-HP, MHSA, director of Patient Care Services, “We also applaud their instructors, who perform an invaluable function in helping us maintain a continuing pool of qualified nurses. Congrats to all!”
Wayne Memorial launched the program in 2010 at the hospital’s Honesdale campus with LCCC, which awards two-year Associate in Applied Science – Nursing degrees. Many of the students who graduate go on to work at Wayne Memorial Hospital. Since its start, the program has graduated 39 nurses.
