Quinsigamond Community College’s recent healthcare graduates are poised for a bright future. According to an article in ExploreHealthCareers.org, healthcare job opportunities in 2016 were growing on average of 35,000 new jobs per month and that trend is continuing as the “baby boomer” generation ages out.

The college recently held its annual pinning ceremonies for graduates of the Nursing programs, Surgical Technology Program, Radiologic Technology Program, Dental Hygiene and Dental Assisting and Respiratory Care Program. Pinning ceremonies are a time-honored tradition dating back to the 1800s. Each program held its own unique ceremony to commemorate the graduates and welcome them into their chosen professions.
