PCC Nursing Students to Ride Atop “A Healing Place” Rose Parade Float

By Juan Gutierrez

Pasadena City College nursing students Ariel Eby and Nicole Brown have been selected by Bare Root, Inc. to ride atop the “A Healing Place” float, which honors nurses of the past, present, and future for their tireless efforts, compassion, and care at the 124th Tournament of Roses Parade on New Year’s Day.

The design of the float reflects the qualities of nurses and characteristics of nursing, according to Weisbrich. The words caring, commitment, compassion, confidence, conscientiousness, and intelligence are inscribed on the base of the float.  “Our riders were selected because they are all highly respected individuals within their respective institutions and epitomize excellence for the profession.  They provide an opportunity to recognize the immense contributions that all nurses make regardless of where they provide patient care,” Weisbrich said. “Our riders represent the current excellence in our field and the future of the profession, and it provides a small look into the vast opportunities that nursing offers.”
