UIW ABSN Graduates Honored at Pinning Ceremony

August 25, 2022

The UIW Ila Faye Miller School of Nursing and Health Professions honored its Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) August graduates at a pinning ceremony in Our Lady’s Chapel on Saturday, Aug. 20. The pinning ceremony celebrates nursing graduates and recognizes their entry into the profession of nursing.

UIW’s ABSN students already hold non-nursing bachelor’s degrees from an accredited institution. The ABSN program is a 16-month, full-time intense program that includes 62 credit hours of hybrid didactic coursework, hands on learning, simulation, and clinical experiences in a variety of settings with clients across the lifespan.

The students received a blended curriculum that combined online coursework, hands-on labs and clinical rotations in a rigorous setting that prepared them to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX). UIW’s ABSN program provides a values-based education focused on treating the whole patient – mind, body and spirit.
