State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) recently delivered the commencement speech to the 2016 graduates of the Licensed Practical Nurse Program at the Cuyahoga Valley Career Center.
Fifty-five students received their degree in Practical Nursing at Thursday’s commencement ceremony.  The students who are successful in completing the required 1200-clock hour program are afforded the opportunity to take the NCLEX exam with the Ohio Board of Nursing to become licensed practical nurses.  Representative Anielski spoke to the students about the importance of service to their community, as they embark on a new chapter in their lives.

The School of Nursing at CVCC began in 1963 as the Parma School of Nursing.  It moved to Cuyahoga Valley Career Center in 2002, where it is now considered one of the top nursing schools in Cleveland and the surrounding areas of Cuyahoga County.
"These young men and women have achieved a great accomplishment, one in which they should be very proud,” Anielski said. “It was an honor to speak to the graduating students and offer additional guidance and commendation as they embark on their next chapter in life.  I look forward to the many great things that these graduates will provide to their communities.”

Cuyahoga Valley Career Center Superintendent, Celena Roebuck, said, “On behalf of the CVCC Board of Education and CVCC Staff, I want to congratulate our graduates. We are committed to providing students with options of full and part-time, day or evening, classes to meet your individual needs. I am pleased to see that you have used those options to your advantage to recognize your talent and accomplish your goals.  We are joining together to celebrate the accomplishments of these graduates, quality men and women who have met the requirements of the rigorous course of instruction set out by our State Board of Nursing, our teaching staff and local advisory committees. We require our students to be able to demonstrate that they have mastered the skills and knowledge necessary to be productive and successful Licensed Practical Nurses. You who are graduating have done just that.”
