WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- White Plains Hospital recently honored 22 graduates from the hospital's Nurse Apprentice Program, and recognized them for their outstanding seven weeks of service.

The program is a partnership between area high schools and the hospital, and allows students to experience life as a nurse for seven weeks each summer. From observing deliveries in maternity to working with Alzheimer’s patients, students got real life nursing experience during clinical rotations in several hospital departments.

These are this year’s apprentice graduates:

  • Jose Saire - Port Chester
  • Mark Soriano - White Plains
  • Catherine Petitti - Eastchester
  • Luiza Andrade - West Harrison
  • Mildres Aguirre - Port Chester
  • J’ana Aikman  - White Plains
  • Emily Frantzen - Blauvelt
  • Shaina Hernandez - White Plains
  • Jennie Chieco - Bedford Corners
  • Julie Berkery - Pearl River
  • Kathryn Linehan - White Plains
  • Ginger Fitchett  - Pomona
  • Darien Pierce - White Plains
  • Anthony Kellman - Bronx
  • Chrissy Ryan -Tappan
  • Tiffany McAuliffe -Tuckahoe
  • Hope Wilkinson - White Plains
  • Taylor Hubner - Yorktown Heights
  • Julia Gonfiantini - Katonah
  • Nickole Morgan - Mamaroneck
  • Alexa Fratarcangeli - Yonkers
  • Kelly Castro - New Rochelle

Highly competitive, the program is designed to provide valuable educational, behavioral, and clinical opportunities for high school and nursing students through clubs, community outreach, and apprenticeships. Since the program's inception 10 years ago, it has graduated 103 students, many who have gone on to become nurses at White Plains Hospital.
