Due to social distancing guidelines, Community College of Philadelphia was unable to host its traditional nurses pinning ceremony, planned for May 1, 2020.  So graduates will together in spirit via a 2020 Zoom online graduation party. Mayor Jim Kenney will offer congratulations along with CCP President Guy Generals, Dr. Tamika Curry, an assistant professor of Nursing, and surprise guests.

The 96 graduates are among the first Nursing students in the area to complete their coursework. The Class of 2020 has faced unthinkable heartbreak and challenges such as job loss, the death of a classmate, illness and the transition to online learning. Three members of the class-many of whom were working jobs as licensed practical nurses or aides in nursing homes or health agencies-tested positive for the novel coronavirus and completed some classwork online while in quarantine. Like past graduates, most are likely to end up with jobs in the City. CCP has produced more than 5,000 Nursing graduates since opening its doors to students in 1965.
