Sixty-three nursing students completing their associate degree will receive their pins at a special ceremony Thursday, Dec. 13.
Nursing professor Brooke Butcher said the nationwide ceremony has a lot of tradition behind it.
“Nurses used to be capped but now they are pinned,” Butcher said. “The idea is you will be able to wear your pin on your scrubs once you become a nurse.”
Butcher said each graduate will have their personal “thank you’s” played as they come up to receive their pins. President Paul Sechrist, Vice President for Academic Affairs Felix Aquino and the entire nursing faculty will be in attendance at the ceremony.Read More
