Nebraska Methodist College will honor 179 graduates at this year’s spring commencement. 

The celebrations began Thursday with the Graduate’s Reception at the Methodist Corporate Ballroom, hosted by the NMC Alumni Association. Graduates, guests and the entire NMC community gathered to congratulate the newest NMC alumni and recognize outstanding students.

Today, two commencement ceremonies will be held at St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church: one to recognize our nursing graduates and another to honor our allied health graduates.

This commencement will be the last for outgoing President and CEO Dr. Dennis Joslin., who is retiring after 15 years at the helm and 41 total years at the college.

“These graduates represent the values and traditions that we hold dear at our institution,” Dr. Joslin said. “We can’t wait to see what incredible things these caring and compassionate men and women will accomplish in their healthcare careers.”
