So, four years of hard work and labour had passed. Many nights spent studying; many moments were filled with headaches from an overloaded influx of information; many grievous situations occurred between/among fellow batch-mates, administrators, lecturers; countless yet memorable sit downs with representatives at the Student Finance Department; and Clinicals, final exams and sectionals.
In August, it was all over! Graduation was the gala event; the moment to bask in the glory that belongs to graduates of a University. In an atmosphere of tremendous tumult, they walked proudly and with great excitement – some with tears of joy – and collected their instruments verifying and validating their completion of studies.
But, the road did not end there. The next step they had to take was to sit an exam which would determine whether or not they will become the next batch of Registered Nurses (RN). They sat that examination; the results are in: success!
You all worked hard to get here and now it has paid off. Congratulations on your monumental achievement.
And to those 2015 graduates from the College of Allied Health and Nursing, who were not successful in this most recent exam, remember the theme of your baccalaureate ceremony: Milestones as Stepping Stones. This isn’t the end of the journey. Keep on stepping; you’ve accomplished many cialis pas cher milestones thus far: your sectionals, then exams, then graduation. You’ve accomplished that much and have come too far to lose hope in an expected future; so keep on stepping!
I tip my hat off to you wonderful and successful nurses. Go and heal; go and care.
