“So many things in the program have changed over the years,” said PSC Vice President of Academic Affairs Dr. Marie Hansel, a graduate of the program, as well as former dean of health programs and former faculty member of nursing at PSC. “But, I think our graduates - whether recent or from years past - will be able to meet with each other and appreciate that some things never change.”
