The event brings together members, their families and trustees to celebrate the high-school students who are working toward a career in nursing. Graduates are presented with a certificate and a Florence Nightingale Lamp of Knowledge pin.

The program aims to increase both the availability and diversity of the New York City nursing workforce by preparing high school students to seriously consider nursing professions and provide the best opportunities for tomorrow’s leaders. For more information visit
