Ceremonies-Capping and Pinning






Each spring students celebrate a tradition of Capping and Pinning:


· Capping symbolizes the successful completion of the 1st year of nursing school. During this traditional ceremony, the 1st year female students are presented the school nursing cap and male students the chevron.


· Pinning symbolizes the successful completion of the entire nursing program. At this ceremony the 2nd year students receive the school nursing pin.


These student-organized ceremonies are co-celebrated at the end of each spring semester.
