The Kishwaukee College Nursing Program held an induction ceremony for the Alpha Delta Nu Nursing Honor Society on Dec. 19. Seven second-year nursing students were inducted as new members of ADN.

ADN is the official honor society of the National Organization for Associate Degree Nursing. To be eligible for admission to ADN, nursing students must maintain a minimum 87 percent average in all nursing courses and complete a leadership project. This year’s class participated in the 15th annual Student Nurse Political Action Day in Springfield.
Speakers at the ceremony were Bette Chilton, dean of Health & Education at Kishwaukee College, and Stacie Kloosterman, inductee and president of the Kishwaukee College ADN chapter.
The inductees received their ADN pins and also were presented with honor cords that they will wear to signify their ADN membership during commencement ceremonies at Kishwaukee College in May.
