Albany - - Almost 40 Darton nursing students are now ready to enter the real world and help fill a critical nursing shortage.
Thirty-nine soon-to-be graduates received nursing pins at Darton Thursday evening. They were joined by 42 sophomore nursing students who hope to follow in their footsteps.
The graduating students say this is an important milestone in their lives.
"It feels wonderful. Its been a lot of work and it's finally here. We can move on with our lives and not have our nose in a book so much," says Rebecca Brooks.
Brooks will start a job in a hospital next month. The next step for many of these students is Board certification exams.
Their official graduation will be held in December.
