So proud! 43 of the 96 Howard University Doctor of Pharmacy candidates were Nigerians!

Nigerian students made us all proud last Saturday at Howard University in Washington D.C,. Of the 96 graduating Doctor of Pharmacy candidates, 43 of them were Nigerians! 
Not only that, 27 awards were presented, and 16 went to Nigerians. 
Also, more than 400 students received professional degrees in law, medicine, pharmacy and dentistry.

U.S. President Barack Obama delivered the keynote address at the event.
Howard University has the only dental and pharmacy colleges in the District of Columbia. The graduates represented 46 states and 35 countries. The youngest graduate at the ceremony was 20-years-old and the oldest was 74.

  3. Students who want to enter nursing school have different reasons for wanting to enroll in nursing. It can be their wish to help others, sense of fulfillment, a dream profession, profession choice by parents or the huge demand for nurses. See more pharmacist recommendation letter sample
