The pinning ceremony is the symbolic welcoming of newly graduated nursing students into the nursing profession. It is about honoring and celebrating nursing students at the culmination of their education journey to becoming a registered nurse. Students wishing to participate in the pinning ceremony must complete all requisite courses of the nursing program.
The Nursing faculty strongly recommends that all nursing graduates attend the college graduation. It is a ceremony that recognizes your accomplishments at the college. It is also an important way to demonstrate our Nursing Program’s success and recognize our graduates at the college level.
