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 July 31st. The ceremony featured a combination July graduates as well as May graduates who weren't able to walk in the spring ceremony. Due to COVID-19, social distancing and mask-wearing was implemented. A limited amount of people were in attendance, however the ceremony was available to stream on Facebook.
