Suffern, NY - In celebration of the Rockland Community College’s 50th Anniversary, the Nursing Department held a reunion dinner for alumni nurses on September 17. More than 100 RNs attended.
In 1961, Rockland Community College’s first graduating class consisted of 39 students, 22 men and 17 women. In 1963, RCC graduated a total of 115 students, including the first 24 from the College’s Nursing program. In total, more than 3,000 students have graduated from the Nursing program—most proclaiming the Nightingale Pledge and receiving their school pins at a traditional “Pinning Ceremony” witnessed by family and friends.

Rockland Community College, a unit of the State University of New York, is located 25 miles northwest of NYC. The majority of its students transfer to four-year colleges, and many find immediate employment upon earning their associate's degree or certificate. The College also offers others, from preschoolers to senior citizens, the opportunity to simply learn something new. Quality education...at a price you can afford.
