Glendale Career College to Honor San Diego Nursing Graduates at Upcoming Commencement Ceremony
Event Demonstrates College’s Commitment to Training Students to Succeed in the Health Care Field
SAN DIEGO, Calif.—For 52 nursing students, Saturday, February 8 will mark the culmination of many months of rigorous studies as they cross the stage at Glendale Career College’s San Diego Commencement Ceremony. To be held at the California Center for the Arts beginning at 1 p.m., the event will draw family members, friends, faculty, and Team Members—all excited to celebrate this milestone moment for these graduates.
“These students have worked incredibly hard to reach their educational goals,” explained Chief Operating Officer Beylor Meza, “and I am greatly looking forward to the opportunity to honor them for their remarkable achievements!”
The ceremony will recognize graduates of the College’s Associate of Arts in Nursing (Registered Nurse) program as well as its Vocational Nurse program. Their studies included in-class instruction paired with a variety of clinical learning opportunities. GCC is known for this hands-on, practical approach, which enables graduates to cement their skills and prepares them for the World of Work.
In addition to listening to acclaimed singer/songwriter Buki Domingos perform the national anthem, attendees will have the opportunity to hear from Keynote Speaker Dr. Carol A. Velas, Nursing Education Consultant and longtime nursing educator. With a nursing career spanning nearly 35 years, Dr. Velas is passionate about women’s health and nursing education. She loves seeing students equipped to succeed and looks forward to encouraging the graduates as they take this next step in their nursing careers.
“When we see individuals cross the stage at graduation, we know that’s another life changed by the quality career education we work so hard to provide here at Glendale Career College,” Meza shared. “We cannot wait to see the positive impact these students will have on their families and on the communities they will serve.”
