Albany Tech graduates first class of nursing students

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Fifteen Albany Technical Nursing students made school history Tuesday night.

The first graduating class of the school's new Associate of Science in Nursing Program received their nursing pins Tuesday night.

Former Dean of Healthcare Technology, Dr. Dorothy King Garner spoke at the ceremony.

Program officials said they are proud of the students' hard work.

"They had to do clinical's in the evening. A lot of our students are working students who work full time 40 hours a week so they had to dedicate a lot of their time from their families and from extra activities to be successful in this program,” said Schvon Bussey, Associate of Science and Nursing Director.

Five graduates already have nursing jobs lined up.

The second class will start later this Fall.
