First Coastal Pines Technical College Nursing Ceremony Held in Baxley

Sixteen students received their Practical Nursing pins during a commemorative rose and pinning ceremony recently at the Fine Arts Center in Baxley, Georgia.

Coastal Pines Technical College presented its 2014 Practical Nursing program students at the Baxley Campus with a commemorative rose and pin signifying the successful completion of their coursework on July 26, 2014.  Sixteen students received roses and certificates by nursing instructors Sheryl Nipper, R.N.; Tammy Higgins, R.N.; and D. J. Everett, R.N.  during the formal ceremony in the Fine Arts Center in Baxley.  Dr. Tonya Fowler Fordham was the guest speaker.
