On Friday night we had a nursing pinning ceremony. We all were dressed in white and had a special ceremony just for us. Unfortunately our camera battery was dead so I didn't have any pictures with me but I hope to get some from friends sometime soon.
Saturday morning was the actual graduation. Elder Jay E. Jensen came to speak to us and his talk was amazing. It seemed as though the ceremonies went on and on and on but it was worth it. It's great to feel somewhat accomplished in my education. Unfortunately, I still have to go to clinical a few more times, prepare and retake the exit exam, and prepare and take the NCLEX exam. So once all that is done I will feel complete! I'd like to thanks my Grandparents for everything they have done. Without their help I would not have been able to get the education that I have. And of course Brady! Poor guy has been through as much stress as I have trying to support me through the stressful times, long nights, and frustrating homework assignments. He also took off work just to stay home with Cooper so that I could spend as much time as possible doing school work and getting as much sleep as I could! He's been so much help and I know that I couldn't have done it without him!
Here are a few pictures from graduation...I hope you enjoy:
