Congratulations UTEP SON Class of 2020
Dear School of Nursing Graduating Class of 2020:
Congratulations to all of you! During this semester’s unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, you have persevered and completed your nursing degrees (BSN, MSN, or DNP). Each of you should be proud of your educational achievements and accomplishments achieved throughout your time at UTEP. As we fight this pandemic, the country desperately needs your nursing skills and expertise to keep our communities safe and healthy.
Even though we are disappointed about the postponement of UTEP’s May Commencement ceremony, as health care professionals we understand the urgent need to take extra precautions to protect ourselves, and our families and friends during this public health crisis. Rest assured that you will receive your degrees as scheduled. However, we very much look forward to celebrating your achievements with you at the special Commencement ceremony that UTEP is planning for our spring graduates on Sept. 12, 2020, in Sun Bowl Stadium. We hope to see you there! Again, I want to personally congratulate each one of you, and I wish you success in all your future endeavors.
Dr. Leslie Robbins
Dean of The UTEP School of Nursing
