WDT to hold pinning ceremony for Practical Nursing graduates

Western Dakota Tech will hold a pinning ceremony for the Practical Nursing spring class of 2013 at 10 a.m. Friday, May 17, in Room ABCD at WDT.

The ceremony will honor this year's graduates for their accomplishments and serve as a way of sending the graduates into the healthcare field.

"This is an important day for these graduates and for Western Dakota Tech," program coordinator Jani Lerback said. "These nurses will serve our communities for years to come."

WDT's practical nursing program prepares students for important and challenging careers in nursing. WDT graduates are well-prepared to contribute to our communities. For several years, 100 percent of WDT nursing graduates have passed the NCLEX-PN (State Boards) required for all practical nurses and are practicing in healthcare settings.

"WDT is providing a high-quality education that allows graduates to provide exceptional nursing care," Lerback said. "We are proud of our graduates and the daily contributions they make in healthcare."

Western Dakota Tech is the only technical institute that serves the western South Dakota region. WDT offers more than 30 programs in a variety of fields, including Business and Computers, Construction Trades, Health Services, Legal and Public Services, Manufacturing and Mechanical Trades, and Science and Technology. More than 98 percent of WDT's most recent graduates are working, continuing their education, or serving in the military, and 90 percent remain in South Dakota.

WDT faculty, staff, and administration focus their efforts on helping students gain the skills and experiences they need to succeed. Through hands-on learning, internships, and industry partnerships, WDT students graduate ready to make real and immediate contributions to their employers and their communities.
