Order Your Pin

The pinning ceremony is a tradition that dates back to the 1860s with nursing pioneer, Florence Nightingale. By 1916, the practice of welcoming new nurses to the profession was commonplace throughout America. The pin is a treasured symbol of their association with their School of Nursing and evidence of completing a demanding, rigorous nursing program. Each distinctive pin represents a nursing track: BSN or MSN.
