Why Do We Have Pinning Ceremonies?


Congratulations on your or your loved one’s accomplishment! It is quite a feat to complete nursing school and make your way into the medical field. As you prepare for your graduation ceremony, it’s important to keep nursing pins in mind.

Why Nursing Pins?

During the 12th century Crusades, large crosses were given to knights who were dedicated to battlefield care of the injured. These crosses were visible from quite a distance away, and they indicated a source of help for any soldier seeking medical attention. Today, smaller pins are given to those who successfully complete nursing school and are ready to help the injured and sick.

Receive Your Deserved Recognition

Pinning ceremonies today are for those who have achieved academic excellence and their loved ones. Now that you are reaching the end of your nursing school, it’s time to choose someone who has supported or encouraged you to present you with your new nursing pin. During the ceremony, this person will come with you to the stage.
