The VSU President also commended the clinical instructors in molding their students and preparing them to become professional nurses. Moreover, he lauded the parents and guardians of the graduates for their unconditional love, moral and financial supports extended to their children. The imposition of pins to the graduates was done by Asst. Professor Elni Mari C. Mendoza, dean of the College of Nursing, and assisted by Ms. Phoebe Lyn B. Calungsod and Ms. Krishna Rae Z.
