Cox College Chronicle | May 2022

Thank you to the brave men and women who have served our country; we remember and honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice. We sincerely hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend and were able to spend some time in reflection.


On May 13, 196 students officially became health care professionals! We are so proud of their hard work and persistence. They are ready for the next step.

Best of luck to all of our graduates as they begin a new chapter in their lives. We’re rooting for you!

Longtime Cox College employee retiring

Debbi Groves has been a beloved faculty member at Cox College for 26 years and has worked at CoxHealth for a total of 36 years! She has a special ability to connect with students, and has been instrumental in making the Cox College simulation experience one of the best in the region. We will miss Debbi so very much, but wish her the best as she transitions to a well-deserved retirement.

Pinning Ceremony

It’s always special to witness the bond between the students and their loved ones as they complete the pinning process. The act of pinning the graduate is a beautiful way for parents, children, and professors to show respect, pride, and admiration for what the student has accomplished.

This was our first Nightingale pinning ceremony since December, 2019 – we’re glad it’s back!

President’s List

Congratulations to our students who made the President’s list for the spring 2022 semester! The President’s List recognizes students for outstanding academic achievement.
