Paul D. Camp Community College’s Department of Nursing and Allied Health recently honored its graduating class of students in the registered nursing program by holding a special pinning ceremony. Assistant Professor Trudy Kuehn, RN, BSN, MSN, served as guest speaker.
Kuehn believes that things in life occur for a reason. “Something happened to bring you to the nursing program. Stay the course and see the recognizable outcome. Only when we look back can we see how it affects us. You can and will make a difference in lives.”

- Nursing Academic Excellence Award-Rebecca Ballance and Katrina Esterly
- Nursing Clinical Excellence Award-Erica Lewis and Jessica Sadler
- Mentorship Award-Mary Darden
