Celebrating Nyack's School of Nursing Graduates

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Monday May 8, 2017


The CBS reality television show, “Survivor” was bested last week at Nyack College Rockland. It was not an individual whose competitiveness, determination or manipulation produced a victor.

At Nyack’s 2017 Cheryl Phenicie School of Nursing Pinning Ceremony, the “Surviving Six” as they dubbed themselves, graced the stage of Pardington Hall before an audience of family, friends, and the campus community for completing the rigorous Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program.

The six young women—Krystal Alexis, Alice Barber, Pascale Barthelemy, Esmeralda Ndoci, Maryann Thomas and Leslie Varughese—joined the ranks of Nyack graduates committed to the legacy of serving others.

Each received special recognition with the following awards presented during the May 5 ceremony.

Ronald and Marilyn Eastman Award for Outstanding Nursing Student: Pascale Barthelemy

Drs. Ardel and Teresa Vietti Award/Academic Excellence in Nursing: Alice Barber

Christian Leadership Award: Leslie Varughese

ANA-NY Future Nurse Leader: Maryann Thomas

Excellence in Clinical Nursing (Good Samaritan Hospital): Krystal Alexis

Excellence in Psychiatric Nursing (Rockland Psychiatric Center): Esmeralda Ndoci
