What is a pinning ceremony? A pinning ceremony is a symbolic welcoming to all newly graduating nurses that have done more than exceptionally well and made it into the nursing profession successfully. This celebrates all of the new nurses who have worked very hard to graduate and do deserve a celebration after all. These nurses are presented custom crafted lapel pins that are given to them by either a family member of their choice, or by the faculty of the nursing school. The nurses then recite a pledge for their careers called the Nightingale Pledge.
Do you have a friend or family member who is about to graduate nursing school? Do you want to get them a gift that they will forever love, cherish and remember for a very long time, if not, the rest of their lives? Do you need help with picking out a memorable present that will have this lasting effect? Well, if so, look no further. This page contains some great gifting ideas that would do just the trick!
