Congratulations to NMC’s Summer 2019 Graduates

Posted by Lizzie Moran Friday, Aug. 9, 2019

NMC's August 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 August 2.

The ceremony honored the accomplishments of the 155 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!

Faculty member Jillian Krumbach congratulates a graduate and hands her a starfish, a special tradition from the alumni department.
