NMC's December 2019 Commencement Ceremony took place at St. Andrew's United Methodist Church.

Nebraska Methodist College welcomed its latest line of nursing and allied health graduates at commencement ceremonies held at St. Andrew's United Methodist Church on December 13.

The ceremony honored the accomplishments of the 78 nursing and allied health graduates who have the skillset, mindset, and heartset to be outstanding healthcare professionals. We proudly welcome each one to the ranks of NMC alumni!
