Clark State Awards Pins to RN, LPN Graduates, Honors Nursing Excellence Award Winners

December 16, 2021

Clark State College held pinning ceremonies for students who have completed their programs of study in Licensed Practical Nursing and Registered Nursing.

The pinning ceremony for the Practical Nursing students was held Thursday, December 9 and the pinning ceremony for Registered Nursing students was held Friday, December 10. Both ceremonies took place at the Clark State Performing Arts Center in downtown Springfield.

“I’m incredibly proud of our RN and PN graduates,” said Dr. Rhoda Sommers, dean of health, human and public services at Clark State. “Each one of them has worked so hard to complete the program in the face of incredible challenges. Our nursing students faced each of these hurdles with grit, determination, and resilience. They are ready to have a positive impact on our region during a time when we desperately need healthcare workers.”

The Nursing Excellence Award winners were also honored. Honorees include:

  • Ashlynn Kingery: Traditional RN Program
  • Sierra Lightner: LPN to RN Program
  • Kristen Bacon: Medic-RN Program

The Registered Nursing program can be completed at Clark State’s Springfield and Beavercreek locations. The Practical Nursing program can be completed at Clark State’s Springfield campus as well as at the Bellefontaine location at Ohio Hi-Point Career Center. Both nursing programs have daytime and evening/weekend enrollment options.
