Sixteen fourth-semester nursing students were inducted into the Alpha Delta Nu Nursing Honor Society at a ceremony held Thursday, Jan. 21 in the Hill Theatre on the RCTC Campus.

This was the first induction ceremony for the RCTC Delta Alpha chapter of Alpha Delta Nu. Students are eligible for admission to this honor society if their cumulative grade point average is 3.0 or higher in all their nursing classes and demonstrate conduct that reflects integrity and professionalism in all clinical areas.

The students received pins and certificates and will receive honor cords to wear during commencement later in the spring.
