Lucyanna Hitch Award for Excellence
This is an annual award given in memory of, and tribute to, Lucyanna Hitch, a dedicated College advocate. This award recognizes the graduating student from any program (BSN, BSRS, and MSN) who best exemplifies the College Values of Excellence, Integrity, Community, and Caring. The award recipient is announced at graduation in May and receives a recognition plaque in addition to a modest cash award. Award recipients are commemorated on the cumulative award plaque permanently on display at the College in the Student Activities Conference Room, Room 102A. This award has been given each year since 1988. The nomination form can be found here.
Nishioka Family Faculty Excellence Award
This award honors a nursing faculty member for contributions in the areas of professional nursing advancement, nursing education advancement, professional behavior and growth, and support of the College. All students are encouraged to nominate a nursing faculty member who has been influential in their program of study. This award has been given each year since 1990 and is sponsored through a generous contribution from Dr. Hiro Nishioka, an ardent supporter of the College. The award recipient receives funds for professional development and is commemorated on the cumulative award plaque permanently on display at the College in Conference Room 212. The nomination form can be found here.
