RN to BSN Program to Graduate 65 Students

Morristown, N.J. (May 13, 2015) – During the time-honored tradition of pinning, 65 R.N. to B.S.N. students looked back on their time at CSE with appreciation and relief that it was almost over.

On May 6, 2015, those receiving their B.S.N. and their families and friends gathered in Dolan Performance Hall to participate in the tradition of receiving the school's pin. Each school of nursing has a pin designed specifically to it and to be pinned means the student has completed all the requirements of the school for a nursing degree.

Special awards were conferred upon the following students:

Patricia Acevedo R.N., one of the student speakers, gave a moving tribute to her classmates and the nursing program as she recounted her journey from South America to the United States and her lifelong dream to become nurse. While she had many naysayers in her life, she did earn her R.N. and then came to CSE to earn her B.S.N.

"CSE helped me to find my American dream," she said. "So, master's degree, here I come!"

Kristen Paladino R.N., another student speaker, paid homage to one of her classmates who had become a mentor.

"She taught me to respect the profession and how to work as a team," said Paladino. "Patricia Marie Henn R.N., who has worked in the profession for many years before seeking her B.S.N., was right by my side when I needed her. I could not have done it without her."

The R.N. to B.S.N. program can involve cohorts from our hospital partners. The partners contribute to the education of the B.S.N. candidates through classes and hands-on experience. The partners are:
