Ellen Al Shean ski this is a special day for you our nursing graduates are truly our pioneers a pioneer is a trailblazer an innovator a person who takes risks in the spirit of advancing society you are masters level family nurse practitioner graduates are our first graduating class of our program you truly are our pioneers three students comprise our inaugural cohort that is actually graduating in May and then we have an additional 11 students who are graduating officially in August but are walking today all of you are the pioneers of this program all of you are blazing a new trail and represent the future of advanced practice nursing you have been educated to embrace an important approach to primary health care one that emphasizes the biological and the psychosocial as they interact with one another you will practice as nurse practitioners who understand the social aspects of health as critical factors to biological health and why is this important scientific evidence tells us that 80% of health conditions are due to social aspects of one's life such as where we live our economic status our access to health care through our strong collaboration with our Social Work colleagues you the students have had the opportunity to emphasize these social determinants of health into your nurse practitioner role in a unique way our profession of Nursing actually has several pioneers in fact these pioneers did embrace the social determinants of health Lillian Wald comes to mind she is the mother of public health nursing she blazed a trail in providing home care to immigrants in the Lower East Side of New York City at the turn of the 19th century she recognized that the living conditions of the immigrants were critical to the health that they experienced and of course Florence Nightingale is internationally recognized as the mother of modern nursing and she emphasized what we call today evidence-based practice she worked in a hospital in the Crimean War and found that the environment of the patients including ventilation and cleanliness had a direct effect on their health these nursing leaders went against the grain against the norm as they engaged in activities that reflected forward thinking in the quest for effective solutions to the healthcare problems of our day being first is significant once you have been first those who follow you cannot be first being first being a pioneer requires a leap of faith and all of you enrolled in a brand-new and unknown program so in many ways you the students were the engines for our success you pushed us as we pursued forward therefore enhancing your own success as well as our success so to you our first master's nursing graduates we wish you well as you create pathways for future graduates setting up your own legacy at the USC Suzanne Dvorak Peck School of Social Work Department of Nursing now as pioneers we know you will encounter obstacles and challenges which is all to be expected but the faculty and I are confident that you will meet these challenges and you will be successful and even on an anecdotal level I can say that I had the privilege of teaching our first three students Tico lorena and adrian in the health policy class and this class was at 6:30 at night on a thursday they had already had a full day of clinical and they even had another class before mine and like that what are we gonna talk about what are we gonna do it they really stepped up to the plate and they got very excited about health policy and I even know from yesterday's reception that they're still working in health policy so you truly are the leaders we are excited to see the future steps that you will take and with your skills knowledge passion you've blazed the path you're the leaders in Nursing you will have an important impact on primary care and the health of communities we are excited to see the future students who come after you we look forward to learning about the Bright Futures you have ahead of you you make us all proud I now present for I now present the candidates for the Master of Science in Nursing and I would like to ask Dean Flynn to receive the class of 2018

faculty and staff graduation is undoubtedly one of the highlights of the University and I must admit that I join in the chorus of excitement associated with it I am enthralled with the grandeur of our USC ceremony awed by its significance and delighted with the conviviality of it all on the beautiful Southern California campus and to celebrate the accomplishment accomplishments of our MSW virtual students makes it even more momentous as virtual students I'm sure you can appreciate my enthusiasm for many of you this is your first time here on campus and an opportunity to meet your professors and peers in person you have been connected to us across thousands of miles and you successfully bridge that gap by your commitment to learning forged by innovative technology so being here is the culmination of your persistence and dedication to learning and to top it off you get to celebrate in the words of our USC radio station k USC the creative capital of the world this is the place where dreams can become reality with Hollywood the backdrop this is the place where some of your favorite movies and television programs have been made some that you can readily identify with certain periods of your life ah Hollywood so this all bring me this all points to being an environment that harnesses the of creativity revolutionizes its potential and unleashes its power to transform lives engaging us inspiring us leaving us awestruck clamoring for more while I extol the wonders of Hollywood however they pale in comparison to what I know about the transformative power of social work and what I know you will do in the communities where you live and work you too will create dreams and foster their realization without star-studded cast and astronomical budgets or a publicity maven who heralds an opening night however instead what you will do is to use your skillset as social workers to understand and solve the intractable problems that face of society you will bring your knowledge of systems theory your application of evidence-based practices and your adroitness in policy analysis in remedying the issues you confront because you know that complex problems require well conceived researched and executed strategies in order to solve them your awareness and commitment to diversity equity and inclusion will help to focus the lens of our society to that which is truly attention worthy valuing the quality of the life of each person regardless of ethnicity race age religion sexual orientation or citizenship status you are the advocates and borrowing Hollywood's terms you are the superheroes as you will be undaunted by the challenges that you face every day the increasing levels of violence the despair of being addicted the destruction of the dignity of the homeless and the erosion of the basics that a society needs to function well simple gestures of courtesy and respect you are the engineers who will construct and reinforce better ideas of well-being for our society and proclaim that the quality of life cannot be ignored while profits soar because of your masters and social work and your astuteness you will speak truth to power reminding our leaders that the gross domestic product is a weak measure of this country's prowess if our citizens mental and emotional health languish as social workers you know all these things and have decided to devote your lives to the betterment of other people's lives as the latest generation of social workers champions of good and it's of change to take up this mantle you have everything you need the trademark of excellence expertise hope vision empathy and the tenacity to ensure your personal achievements and the success of this great nation and its people thank you congratulations and fight on I now present
