SAN DIEGO, Calif.—For 52 nursing students, Saturday, February 8 will mark the culmination of many months of rigorous studies as they cross the stage at Glendale Career College’s San Diego Commencement Ceremony. To be held at the California Center for the Arts beginning at 1 p.m., the event will draw family members, friends, faculty, and Team Members—all excited to celebrate this milestone moment for these graduates.
“These students have worked incredibly hard to reach their educational goals,” explained Chief Operating Officer Beylor Meza, “and I am greatly looking forward to the opportunity to honor them for their remarkable achievements!”
The ceremony will recognize graduates of the College’s Associate of Arts in Nursing (Registered Nurse) program as well as its Vocational Nurse program. Their studies included in-class instruction paired with a variety of clinical learning opportunities. GCC is known for this hands-on, practical approach, which enables graduates to cement their skills and prepares them for the World of Work.
