Each semester, students are honored with a ceremony at graduation. Honoring ceremonies have been a part of Lakota history for generations. The ceremony signifies recognition of achievement for students for having attained completion of their nursing program. The honoring ceremony also means understanding the responsibility of conducting their lives as professional nurses.
