Nursing Graduates Awarded Their Pins

The Pinning Ceremony is an opportunity to honor nursing students as they transition from student to professional. The ceremony culminates as the students receive the Crown Nursing Pin on their white lab coats and together recite the Florence Nightingale Pledge*. The ceremony provides both the students and the department an opportunity to thank all those who have supported them, including: Crown faculty, administration, staff, clinical partners, family and friends.
