Default Our youngest, daughter graduated Nursing School last night!

A graduating class of 56 students, (that started as 100+) were "Pinned" at the celebration last night!

Yes, I'm very proud she's chosen to follow her mother's career! Now, if only she get hitched and give us a grand baby!

Really, all these students had some serious courage, starting nursing school during the "virus" pandemic. It made for some tough times along with making new ground, on how they teach nursing.

Proud Dad thread!!!

Proud Dad thread!!!
Congrats


But this proud Dad has to one-up-you.

Both my sons just graduated in 2022.

My oldest just finished up his academic and athletic career graduating from Cleveland State in business Cum laude and was a 4 year lacrosse player as a faceoff specialist.

Cole Destroying an Ohio State Player



My youngest just graduated from High School Cum laude and played 4 years on the basketball team and is the starting goalie for the lacrosse team that is 16-0 entering the state playoffs and have a real shot at a state championship.



Best part is my oldest already has a job and my youngest is going on to become an electrician that he has a passion for. No telling how these boys would have tuned out if my wife hadn't been around. I owe it all to her really. Proud Dad here tool.

No doubt getting a degree in nursing is an accomplishment but lots of them appear to be quitting due to the government and medical industry covid nonsense? Masking and vaccines apparently?

Yes, I definitely agree some major challenges out there. My wife's been there to coach and got my daughters foot in the job. She has already been hired, not many grads can say that!

Congratulations to you and your daughter. My mother was a nurse and now my oldest daughter is an RN as well. A tough but very rewarding career. You should be proud.
