On Friday, October 26th, the school held its annual Graduate Entry Prespeciality in Nursing (GEPN) award ceremony, honoring over a hundred students who passed their NCLEX exams and who are now qualified RNs. These students, who will continue on at YSN for two more years to complete their Masters of Science in Nursing degrees, were joined by family and friends. Dean Ann Kurth and Executive Deputy Dean Carmen Portillo, presented the awards, which included a certificate and the traditional white YSN baseball caps. Professor Linda Honan shared remarks of encouragement and congratulations. The celebrations continued with Fall Fest, an outdoor fall-themed party at the Yale Landscape Lab, where everyone enjoyed food and drinks, pumpkin carving, a bonfire, music, and lots more.
