Freed-Hardeman University presented awards March 18 to five nursing students who are expected to receive the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree in May. The awards ceremony was conducted earlier than planned because of the COVID-19 crisis.
The Spirit of Job Award was presented to Booth White, from Jackson, Tennessee, because of his perseverance. Two students received the Servant’s Heart Award for their caring and compassion. They were Wilson Miskelly from Henderson, Tennessee, and Emma Butt, from Sharpsburg, Georgia. The Nightingale Award for academic achievement went to Paige Watson from Birmingham, Alabama. The Lioness Award was presented to Emily Arnold from Mount Juliet, Tennessee, because of her strong leadership. Award recipients were presented Bibles and an animal figurine representative of the characteristics signified by the award.
Last year, FHU’s BSN cohort had a 100 percent pass rate on the NCLEX, outperforming the state and national averages on the test. The test, administered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, is the final step in the licensure process. It determines whether candidates are ready to enter the profession.
The mission of Freed-Hardeman University is to help students develop their God-given talents for His glory by empowering them with an education that integrates Christian faith, scholarship and service. With locations in Henderson, Memphis and Dickson, FHU offers bachelor's, master's, specialist's and doctoral degrees.
