October 13, 2014 – The Shorter University School of Nursing held its annual Rising Ceremony on Thursday, Oct. 9, at Pleasant Valley North Baptist Church. The ceremony recognized the progress of students in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program. Rising senior students were presented candles, a reminder of the lamp that traces its roots to Florence Nightingale and is a widely recognized symbol of the modern nursing profession. In the photo above, Ali Perry (’14) passes the lantern to Ashley Lee (’15). Shorter’s junior nursing majors received personalized lab coats, which represent their entry into the clinical setting.
