PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island College has graduated 63 new nurses at a mid-year pinning ceremony.

The recent ceremony featured Rhode Island Free Clinic CEO Marie Ghazal as the keynote speaker. She told graduates that the changing health care landscape has given nurses increased recognition in the field of patient care and said their expertise primes them for roles as policymakers.

RIC bestows about 170 undergraduate degrees in nursing each year, and another 15 master’s degrees.

An academic excellence award was given to Kate Nadeau of Lincoln, while Cynthia Scott of Providence got an award for service excellence.
