GCC Pins 19 Practical Nursing Graduates


Guam – Guam Community College held its annual Pinning Ceremony for 19 students who completed the one-year Certificate of Practical Nursing program on Thursday, December 13, at the Sheraton Laguna Guam Resort.

Five of the students each received a $1,000 tuition assistance scholarship through a TakeCare grant awarded to the GCC Allied Health program. The students will now prepare to pass their NCLEX licensure exam and secure jobs in Guam’s medical field.
