ENGLEWOOD RESIDENT HONORED AS BERKELEY COLLEGE
SCHOOL OF HEALTH STUDIES PINS GRADUATES 

 

Graduates in the Practical Nurse program of the Berkeley College School of Health Studies were honored during a pinning ceremony held on April 25, 2017, in Woodland Park, NJ.  Reciting the Florence Nightingale Pledge, the 29 graduates promised to uphold the integrity of the nursing profession before receiving their honors. 

 

Dikeya Gainey of Englewood in Bergen County, NJ, received a pin from Berkeley College.

 

Josiane Hickson, EdD, RN-BC, NE-BC, Chair, Practical Nurse and Patient Care Technician programs, Berkeley College School of Health Studies, gave the welcome address and congratulated the graduates.

 

“You are the next generation to continue the legacy of the profession of nursing,” Dr. Hickson said.   “Nurses need to keep learning, growing and challenging themselves to master something new. Remember that one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself - right here, right now - is to decide, without apology, to commit to the journey of your chosen profession rather than the destination of a job.”  

 

Practical Nurses provide care to their patients in a variety of healthcare environments, including physicians’ offices, clinics, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, rehabilitation centers and home healthcare settings.

The Berkeley College School of Health Studies was created to provide career-focused education in some of today’s most in-demand healthcare professions – in clinical specializations, as well as healthcare administration and management. Degree and certificate programs have been carefully developed to meet the needs of this important field.   

 

A leader in providing career-focused education since 1931, Berkeley College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and enrolls more than 8,000 students – including more than 550 international students – in its Master’s, Bachelor’s and Associate’s degree and Certificate programs.

Luing School of Business®, the School of Professional Studies, the School of Health Studies, and the School of Liberal Arts. The School of Graduate Studies offers an MBA in Management online and in Woodland Park, NJ.

 

Berkeley College has five New Jersey campuses – Dover, Newark, Paramus, Woodbridge and Woodland Park. In New York there are three campuses – Midtown Manhattan, Brooklyn and White Plains. Berkeley College Online® serves a global population. For four consecutive years, U.S. News & World Report has named Berkeley College among the Best Colleges for Online Bachelor’s Programs and among the Best Online Bachelor’s Programs for Veterans.
