Our Lafayette Campus held a Nightingale Medical Honor Society induction ceremony on March 31, 2014. The event took place on Campus, and all inductees received a certificate and a pin honoring their achievement. Family and friends were in attendance for the event.

During the ceremony, Health Sciences Department Chair Rhena Garcia presented the students with a certificate, and the pinning ceremony was performed by a family member. Each inductee had a role in presenting the mission, vision and purpose of the Nightingale Medical Honor Society to the audience. Cake and punch were served following the gathering.

Members enrolled in our Health Sciences programs must have a 3.8 GPA and be recommended by an instructor to be nominated into the society, which recognizes students specializing in healthcare studies. This ceremony has been taking place at the Lafayette Campus for more than 16 years.

The society is named in honor of Florence Nightingale, a celebrated English social reformer and statistician and the founder of modern nursing. She came to prominence while serving as a nurse during the Crimean War, where she tended to wounded soldiers. She was known as “The Lady with the Lamp” because of her habit of making rounds at night.

Lafayette Campus President JoAnn Boudreaux said, “We congratulate the newest members of our Nightingale Medical Honor Society at the Lafayette Campus and are proud of their dedication to their studies and their scholastic achievements.”
