CON Holds Capping and Candle Lighting Ceremony

176 second year nursing students received their caps and pins and lighted their candles during the Capping and Candle Lighting Ceremony held on December 3, 2015 at the WVSU Cultural Center. 
The ceremony was made memorable by the presence of Hon. Mila Delia M. Llanes, National President of the Philippine Nurses Association, as Guest Speaker.
Adding more significance to the occasion were Dr. Luis M. Sorolla, University President, and Dr. Giovanni A. De los Reyes, VP for Medical and Allied Sciences, who together with the Dean, Dr. Rosana Grace Belo-Delariarte, led the Candle Lighting Ceremony.
The Capping Ceremony is a momentous ceremony wherein student nurses receive the much coveted caps (for females) and pins (for males).  The Candle Lighting signifies the student nurses’ acceptance of the challenges of the nursing profession. The symbol of light came from the Florence Nightingale, the Lady of the Lamp, who began the flicker of hope for Nursing by showing the world what her caring heart and hands can do. Until now, the lamp remains as a symbol of hope – hoe for love, understanding and life.
