STUDENTS - you may attend this event, but must pre-register in order to participate
Pinning is a celebration/reception with family and friends that is in addition to the commencement ceremony. Each student walks across the stage and receives their BSN pin from someone special to them. Graduates will stand together at the end of the ceremony and recite the Nightengale Pledge. The Nursing pin is unique to each school and the tradition is traced back to the 12th century.
Students have expressed that this additional celebration is a meaningful and symbolic way to recognize their entry into their professional nursing career.
