The School of Nursing at Platt College celebrated the start of another successful quarter. On January 5, 2014 the nursing department admitted its 36th cohort. Dr. Hollie Caldwell, Dean of Nursing at Platt College, commented that "there is great anticipation and excitement every time a new cohort begins. It is our hope that students grow personally and professionally throughout the program, and that they gain an ability to value the role of the professional nursing which impacts individuals, families, groups, communities, and populations that are forever changed." Dr. Caldwell adds that the best part of seeing students begin the program is to personally watch students develop into nurses that are compassionate and astute providers of care, respectful and visionary leaders, and proud members of the nursing profession."
The School of Nursing at Platt College admits students in January, March, June, and September of each year. Platt College is located minutes to Denver with convenient light rail accessibility.

Platt College congratulates nursing student Jennifer Hazard. In December 2014, Jennifer completed and passed the Trauma Nursing Core Course at Denver Health. The core course emphasizes knowledge, critical thinking, and hands-on training to provide expert care for trauma patients. We are proud of Jennifer's hard work and accomplishment because typically an individual must be a registered nurse to be verified.
Nursing students from the School of Nursing at Platt College take the Nightingale Pledge at their recent graduation/pinning ceremony at a hotel near Denver.
The Nightingale Pledge was once taken by all new professional nurses upon first entering the nursing profession. It was named after the famous nursing pioneer Florence Nightingale, who was a championed English nurse. Nightingale laid the foundations of modern nursing with her nursing school at St. Thomas’ Hospital in London (now part of King’s College in London).
