Four Cleveland State nursing students, Gena Bagwell, Jasmine Celeste, Breanna Garrick and Lauren Bodenhamer, were inducted into Cleveland State’s Beta Omicron Chapter of Alpha Delta Nu, the honor society for associate degree nursing students.

Dr. Cynthia Waller, dean of Healthcare Professions at Nashville State Community College was the guest speaker. “Never pass an opportunity to make a patient’s bed, to remind yourself that sometimes the smallest deeds can make a big difference for the patient,” said Dr.

Waller. “Let your passion for nursing drive you and not the paycheck.” Dr. Waller sits on the national board representing the South East Region in the Organization of Associate Degree Nurses, the sponsoring organization for Alpha Delta Nu.

Each of the students received the Alpha Delta Nu pin from Director of Nursing Nancy Thomas and honor cords from Dean of Business and Healthcare Susan Webb-Curtis.

Cleveland State’s Beta Omicron Chapter of Alpha Delta Nu, the honor society of the National Association for Associate degree nurses, was chartered in 2013 and has now inducted over 70 members. Students must meet stringent requirements to qualify for admission into this honor society including attaining at least a 3.0 overall GPA including nursing courses, demonstrating conduct on campus and in the clinical areas reflecting integrity and professionalism and completing a capstone project.
