Members of the media are invited to cover and photograph the University's Nursing Pinning Ceremony on the Orville E. Kean Campus on St. Thomas on Wednesday, May 11, from 4 – 6 p.m. It will be held in the Administration and Conference Center (ACC) First-Floor Conference Room.
A nursing pinning ceremony is a symbolic event for nursing students as it marks the hard work and dedication of their coursework and clinical rotations. Each student receives a traditional nursing pin that marks their transition from student to a professional nurse. The students take a sacred oath of commitment and the Florence Nightingale Pledge at the ceremony.
Members of the University community, family, and friends are invited to attend.
Note: In-person attendees ages 5 and older must show proof of vaccination. If unvaccinated, an attendee must present a negative COVID test prior to being admitted into the event. All negative COVID tests must be within 72 hours of the event.
