When we welcome a new cohort of nursing students in the fall, we bless their nursing school experience with a Commitment Ceremony. The ceremony’s purpose is twofold: a celebration of the start of  their journey towards the vocation of nursing and an acknowledgement of the significance and challenge of this path.

Nursing School is rigorous and demanding–but incredibly rewarding too. Students must count the cost before embarking on this course of study and the Commitment Ceremony is symbolic of that decision.

Students, their family, and friends gather to celebrate and commemorate this beginning…this Commitment… in the DeSantis Family Chapel on the PBA campus.
