Wallace Community College's largest nursing class, 80 students, is getting ready to graduate this Fall.

More than twenty vendors met with the soon-to-be-graduates, Thursday.

Local hospitals discussed job opportunities, and colleges talked about furthering their education.

Hannah Glover graduated with an associates degree in nursing six years ago.

Glover says she was excited to show these graduates they can be successful with their associates degrees, too.

"They can make it and their time will fly by. They'll soon be 5 years down the road and look at their big nursing careers, so it's good to be able to encourage them that I've been in their shoes before, and they can make it."

According to a registered nurse's salary in Alabama is around $26.50.
